Nearly twice as many women as men suffer from depression or anxiety, interfering with their ability to work and care for themselves and their loved ones. Now, Deborah Sichel and Jeanne Watson Driscoll show how depression and anxiety are the result of a process of long-term chemical "loading" as the brain repeatedly "revs up" in response to stress. Here, they share their unique self-care program, NURSE: Nourishment and Needs, Understanding, Rest and Relaxation, Spirituality, and Exercise, to help the brain self-stabilise and prevent future problems. They also advocate early, customised use of medications, uniquely based on how a woman′s genetic make up, life experiences, and hormonal and reproductive history affect her particular mood disruptions. An intimate look at how women′s mood issues change at each stage of their reproductive lives, this book offers help to women who have been suffering in silence for too long.

It is sad seeing my Aunt who is of the generation of keeping silent. I recommended this book to her. I for one am gratefully my generation is now more open to many changes of female hormones, emotions, and the brain. I hope that one day my Aunt will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and realize what she is going through other women experience as well.
I understand where some of the comments are coming from about the drug issue, in this day in age there is a little bigger and better selection of drugs available. When it comes to taking them as needed to try do as prescribed by psychiatrists. My aunt went into relapses each time she came off of it. I love the suggest that is made about changing the amount of drugs taken according to what time of month it is with menstrual cycles.
Also authors did a great job explaining the brain and how hormones affect it and how delicate the mind is. It helped me realize in tears how much I have taken my mind for granted and not pay to much attention to give it rest from everyday stresses, which explains why the brain has self destruct thoughts because of so much over load past years and damage to the chemicals in the mind to help keep stable.
Before I read this book I was in desperate needs to better understand my diagnoses of bipolar II that received a couple months back, this book was the answer to my prayers, now I better understand the importance of medications for those that are truly in need help from chemical imbalances my brain. Before I had thoughts that I didn't want to go through with what my friend went through with bouncing around through psychiatrist finding the right diagnose and become a lab rat with finding the right medications. Now I know the importance of having a psychiatrist that will diagnose me as a whole.
Currently I'm not on any medications right now, since I just been diagnosed by a therapist two months back. I want to learn more about my situation and thanks to this book need of searching for the most part stops with this book.
I can't thank the authors enough for all there time and effort in putting the book together for us women
