Desperately Seeking Slater (author Dr. Lauren Slater) “Blue Dreams: The Science and the Story of the Drugs that Change our Minds”

does anyone remember the Madonna film “Desperately Seeking Susan?” Well, I’m desperately seeking the author of this book…can’t seem to find a way to contact her electronically …and I am pretty sure she’ll be at my upcoming conference. BTW,

I just read this book.  If you are a woman with a mental health issue or are close to someone with same, you must read this book. Audaciously, she weaves memoir and science, something many authors say can’t be done.

Then…if this isn’t stranger than fiction…..She’s got all my diagnoses, eating disorder, borderline, adhd, memory issues, bipolar, and more. She’s got all my side effects…too….which if you’ve ever followed my blogs, are legend. She’s a wonderful author and if you’ve never read one of her books, “Prozac Diary” is wonderful and even deals with Prozac Poopout, a topic some publishers won’t touch with a ten foot pole.

Anyway, I’m about to go to New York to speak about Tardive Dyskinesia at the American Psychiatric Association
