Best-selling author and Grammy-winning musical superstar Naomi Judd shares her devastating personal story of depression to spread awareness and encourage others with the disease.
The world knows Naomi Judd as one of the most successful and best-loved country music stars ever. What the world hasn't known - until now - is that after her 2010 and 2011 North American tour with Wynonna, Naomi fell into a debilitating and terrifying depression that seemingly came out of nowhere. Just months after the successful tour ended, Naomi truly believed she had every reason to end her life. Facing severe depression, terrorizing panic attacks, PTSD, toxic drug poisoning, and addiction, she spent the next two and a half years in psychiatric hospitals, undergoing treatments and searching for answers. In River of Time, Naomi describes the agonizing toll this took on her and shares her message of hope after surviving the most painful period in her life.

If I had known better, I woulda done better!!
Lots of useful information about mental illness.
I found the book gave a lot of info about mental health issues, treatments and what is going on inside a person suffering this way.
Prozac Nation was perhaps a story about a younger person's struggle with depression whereas this book was written from an older person's perspective and gave more useful treatment info than salacious or libidinous stories like the aforementioned autobiography. I think some books just lay out the personal story and feelings but not necessarily what to try and what to do to try to feel better.this book was both personal and informative.
I liked Naomi, thought her husband seemed like a gem for standing by and helping her as would any good, Christian man (or so I'd like to believe!) and I also really like her daughter, Ashley. She's very smart and is a serious humanitarian who aids others and champions important causes without all the publicity that other celebrities receive.
It was hard to read at times since I suffer from depression too but I'm glad I stuck with it!
