Barbara had it all: a successful career as an award-winning documentary film maker, a strong relationship, and plenty of friends. But a lingering problem with anxiety drew her into a dangerous Valium addiction. Her story is an honest, gripping look into addiction, her ill-advised cold-turkey withdrawal and the hospitalizations that followed, the worst the psychiatric field has to offer, and her painful yet persistent pathway back to functioning. Through it all, Gordon is a beacon of hope, actively choosing life over the alternative, even after journeying to the darkest depths of the human psyche.This beautifully written classic is a must read for anyone battling their own psychological demons, anyone in the mental health field, and everyone in need of an inspiring survivor story. Praise for I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can:Spellbinding seems too mild a word. -Detroit Free PressGordon's story rings with authenticity. -Washington PostNot only a frightening account of the tortured journey of her mind and soul, but a beautiful story that is filled with life and hope. -Philadelphia Bulletin
