In this candid, conversational memoir, Lorraine Bracco shares the story of her spiral into—and back from—the depths of depression; how she finally got the help she needed; her marriages and brutal custody battle; her determination to be a good mother; and her refusal to be marginalized in a society obsessed with youth and beauty. Here, she openly reveals the details of her struggle, the treatment that helped her triumph, and her experience playing psychiatrist Dr. Melfi on HBO’s The Sopranos—the role that helped to save her life.
“I hope my story encourages people to come forward and get the help they need.  I want to help others to do what I did—to let go of the shame and the fear.  When I was depressed, I wallowed in the idea that the best part of my life was over.  I blew it.  I took the wrong path, and this was what I got—what I deserved. Thank God I got help before I went too far down that road. . . .
There’s help. It’s treatable. Getting treatment for depression was the best decision I ever made; going public about it was the second best.”
