New York City Girl

“Here I am today, at age 62, feeling like I’m 22 years old again,” says Rose Anna Sottile, after battling for many years with bi-polar illness and a crippling depression which left her eating herself into oblivion.

 

Rosie was born to a loving Italian family in New York City. Her intelligence and singing talent sparkled at an early age.  She won honors and awards in school, then started a distinguished business career in New York City. Rosie loved life and the New York Yankees.  She was on top of the world – until her husband’s thefts, lies and gambling and her chemistry drove her into a mental hospital.

 

There followed years of struggle to overcome the insidious enemy that no one seemed able to diagnose, let alone cure.  But Rosie struggled on, in and out of hospitals and treatments, until she found “Doc,” who recognized her ailment and prescribed meds and lifestyle changes that turned her life around.

 

This heartwarming story of struggle, pain and finally success offers a roadmap to other sufferers.  It is a story of perseverance, hope and courage.  As Rosie says, she couldn’t have done it without Doc and her supportive and loving family. They are still with her, helping her celebrate the accomplishments of her earlier dreams.


Excerpt

My parents knew there was something wrong because I was late for dinner at their home, and I was never late. They immediately walked to the 86th Street Car Service, where my husband Lasz worked, and told him that there was something wrong with me. When they arrived at our apartment, they found me in bed on a pool of urine. They phoned the doctor and he thought I was on drugs, but my folks reassured him I was not. My brothers were contacted. One brother drove me to Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn while the other held me. It took a long time to get admitted to the ER. Angelo was very disturbed and punched his fist through the hospital wall (Anthony told me this). My brother Anthony remained calm, but wanted to beat the hell out of my hubby. The only reason he didn’t was because he didn’t want me to go through any more stress when I got out of the hospital. I was finally admitted. The year was 1977.

I was diagnosed with manic depression. I stayed in the hospital for three weeks. My parents were mortified. They and Lasz were still communicating, but Mom and Dad wanted to make sure all the bills were paid. Dad asked. Lasz replied, “They might not have been. It’s none of your business.” My folks didn’t deserve that kind of answer. After I got out of the hospital, I went to live with Mom and Dad.

My soon-to-be ex-husband told my doctor we were getting a divorce. My family encouraged me to go ahead with it. Lasz checked with my doctor to determine if he should leave me and was told that if he didn’t, I would never be the girl I’d been before. That summer, he filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He always knew that the courts would not file charges for going bankrupt. With this in mind, we were divorced in 1978.

Reclaiming Life
Do you know what it’s like to be attacked by bi-polarism? Even those who suffer this disease often go undiagnosed, unable to understand what is devastating their lives. In this autobiography, we are given the opportunity to walk through the years of one such sufferer who finally found a doctor who correctly diagnosed her and prescribed meds and lifestyle changes that allowed her to regain her life.

Born to a loving Italian family in New York City, Rose Anna Sottile began life as a bright, happy child. Her intelligence and singing talent sparkled at an early age. She won honors and awards in school, then started a distinguished business career in New York City. Rosie loved life and the New York Yankees. She was on top of the world – until her chemistry, pushed to the limit by her husband’s thefts, lies and gambling, drove her into a mental hospital.

There followed years of struggle to overcome the insidious enemy that no one seemed able to correctly diagnose, let alone cure. But Rosie struggled on, in and out of hospitals and treatments, until she found “Doc,” who recognized her ailment and prescribed meds and lifestyle changes that turned her life around.

This heartwarming story of struggle, pain and finally success offers a roadmap to other sufferers. It is a story of perseverance, hope and courage. She couldn’t have done it without Doc and her supportive and loving family. As Rosie says, “Here I am today, at age 62, feeling like I’m 22 years old again,”

Walk with her through the frightening years and discover with her how her nightmare was ended, allowing her to once again pursue her dreams.
