  • You keep thinking about telling your story, but you worry about resurrecting the past or about spilling family secrets. You need someone who's been there and would understand.
  • You've overcome A LOT, and there's no way you went through it for it not to mean something MORE.
  • You want to share your story in a way that delivers impact and is part of the legacy you leave behind.
  • You know it's going to take some time and resources to get it done, but NOW is YOUR time to do it.

“Paolina lets the reader in, to both her heart and her mind, as she struggles to make sense of the madness all around her. This is a harrowing story told with generosity of spirit, and that is not easy to do.” —Jennie Nash, founder and CEO, Author Accelerator

Committed is a must-read for anyone struggling with mental illness, especially if, like Paolina, insanity has taken root in your family tree. This raw memoir brings to light the reality of madness — both in terms of what may surround us and that which may lurk within us.” —Samantha Dunn, author of Failing Paris and Not By Accident

“It's probably one of the best books on mental illness that I have ever read. Paolina Milana tells her story of having a mother, then later a sister, with paranoid schizophrenia with such honesty and passion. The toll that being a caregiver has on her is completely understandable and
she shows real courage. I highly recommend this book!"
