Synopsis: “Depression isn’t sexy like drug addiction.” This was my therapist’s answer when I asked her why there is so much hype and media surrounding drug and alcohol addiction, but not for depression. And the answer is that dumb. People Magazine won’t cover it. It was beyond frustrating. After that answer, I just sat there with nothing to say. No slurred sound bites, no paparazzi pics. No embarrassing but effective cry for help. And yet, as too many people know, suffering Depression is to experience a pain like no other, that can’t even be explained in terms of pain. Depression saps all of your energy and your will to live, and all you can do to keep the pain from overcoming you is to promise yourself that you will come out a stronger, better person on the other side. And it hides itself. Depression is rarely so obvious as someone wearing all black or staying in a bed all day with the covers over their heads. It could be your friend or family member who seems so happy, so perfect, showing you that everything in the world is going great. As hard as it is going to be to push my pride to the side and take you on my journey, I am going to do it. I am going to because I KNOW deep down in my heart that I will help other people who are either going through Depression right now, or have a loved on who is – people who desperately need to understand. I could never have written a book like this after I survived my first bout of major depression in 2007. It’s hard to even remember how I could possibly have considered committing suicide. That was someone else. But now that I have relapsed, it is quite scary how often I imagine taking my own life, planning it in detail, step-by-step. I wrote this book during a deep clinical depression after being fine for six years. I wanted to truly convey the thoughts feelings that are associated with Major Depression. The main purpose of this book to give you courage, the resources, and an easy plan to get the help you need. Trust me, if I could do it (twice) then I know you will be able to.
