I Don't Want To Be Crazy
I Don't Want To Be Crazy | Samantha Schutz
4 posts | 3 read | 7 to read
A harrowing, remarkable poetry memoir about one girl's struggle with anxiety disorder. This is a true story of growing up, breaking down, and coming to grips with a psychological disorder. When Samantha Schutz first left home for college, she was excited by the possibilities -- freedom from parents, freedom from a boyfriend who was reckless with her affections, freedom from the person she was supposed to be. At first, she revelled in the independence. . . but as pressures increased, she began to suffer anxiety attacks that would leave her mentally shaken and physically incapacitated. Thus began a hard road of discovery and coping, powerfully rendered in this poetry memoir.

Read this memoir in verse hoping I can use with my students for their last high school English credit (aged 18-21). Many suffer from anxiety & am looking for that gem that will both interest & help them. Isn't perfect, but think it could make an interesting read for some of them. Worth reading for anyone, not just young people as it has some great insight into anxiety/panic disorders #litsy2017readingchallenge #authormyage #idontwanttobecrazy

Trigger Warning ⚠️ If you have anxiety or a panic disorder, be wary while reading this. I have anxiety and related to this book on a deep level, so it made me quite anxious while reading. It is a great book, though. There's tons of stuff in here to help graduating seniors of both high school and college. It's a wild ride and it's so good. A very relatable poetry memoir.

For the evening I think I'll do a slight relocation from dockside to fireside. Love that I can spend outdoor time with my boys and still manage to read! #endlesssummer #sunshineandbooks
