Totally Fine is proof of the fact that many of us read to know we are not alone, and that many of us also write to know we are not alone.
Tiffany has taken a brutal experience and fashioned something beautiful and restorative from it. I wish I'd had this book to guide me into adulthood.

Shame is a monster that grows inside us. We all have the monster, it’s what we decide to do with it that determines how we live our lives. This is my story…
One day in the summer of 2008, I was sat on a train travelling back to London from a weekend of partying with friends when I received a phone call that suddenly changed everything.
I was told my boyfriend Richard was in hospital. He died seven days later.
I spent most of my twenties pretending this never happened.
Will go a long way to helping those struggling with the stigma and shame that, sadly, persistently surrounds mental health.
Tiffany Philippou explores what happened to Tiffany’s life after the tragic suicide of her boyfriend when the couple were university students.
The book follows her journey in the ten years following his death – a tumultuous decade but one in which she emerges with hard-won wisdom.
Tiffany learnt how to embrace her past and the ongoing messiness of life and a mission to share her story so that it might bring solace to anyone living with shame, guilt or loss.
