But I'm Not Depressed

By Lia Rees

Biography & memoir | eBook


Brain injury plunged me into a world of distortion and chaos, where my own thoughts and senses could no longer be trusted. Searching for medical help, I found doubt and manipulation instead. "But I’m Not Depressed" is a bleak but ultimately hopeful tale, and a slap in the face to the culture of psychobabble.




Lia Rees lives in London. She loves music, particularly prog rock, chillout and anything melancholy. Her ideal house involves plenty of books, attractive lamps and things made from coloured glass. Open-source culture and wild places excite her, and she has dabbled in the creative arts of jewellery making, crochet and T-shirt design. Since 2005, she has been living with the psychological and cognitive effects of an acquired brain injury. Her first book, "But I'm Not Depressed", uses a lyrical, honest writing style to convey the loss of language and personality itself, and her search for answers in a flawed medical system. She writes to bring readers into the surreal world of the survivor, and to save other survivors from the psychology trap. A follow-up book is planned on the effects of brain injury in high-IQ people.
