Having striven for a state of happiness and contentment her whole life, Poppy Radcliffe reached it after separation from her husband. For three glorious months the demon on her shoulder was gone. A little over excited by this newfound joy she slipped up and, like many a person following a separation found herself screaming her heart out in a police cell after trying to quash an out of control sex drive with rum. But did she really deserve to be sectioned? That was just the start of an extraordinary story told with her heart rending poetry.
