This little book is designed to accompany you as you walk the road of recovering from events that have changed your life. It might be as straightforward as the grief involved in changing a job or as complex as the deep sadness accompanying a relationship break up. We are all recovering from something and here Aisbett shows us how to deal with it and to recover. First of all we have to admit that something has happened, acknowledge how we feel about it (afraid, angry, lonely, alone) and the sense that we are unique in our suffering, that there is no way out and things are beyond our control. Eventually we realize that we have to fight, to accept and then we are survivors. This is the road to recovery.

Out of this experience, she developed the character IT which led to the successful publication of Living with IT, Living IT up and Letting IT Go. Bev has also published Get Real, dealing with body image and eating disorders and in 2000 the successful Taming the Black Dog: A guide to depression.
