“When I was younger, maybe ten or eleven, I started to feel like I was different from everybody else . . . Then I was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder. And trichotillomania (that’s pulling out your own hair). And then generalized anxiety disorder. And then panic disorder. Since then, I’ve been on a roller coaster, with plenty of ups and downs.”—Sophie Riegel

Part one of this book brings you along on Sophie’s personal journey from despair to diagnosis and treatment, and what she experienced along the way. Part two of this book is about you, whether you’re a teenager or someone who lives with or works with teens.
