Beyond Blue by Therese Borchard
This isn't something I talk about a lot. Not that I'm ashamed of it or anything but I like to concentrate on the positive and that's hard to do if all you're talking about is how you suffer from Major Depressive Disorder. Anyway, for the longest time I struggled with my feelings. I had no idea how I felt and therefore couldn't process my emotions. It took a break-down to make me realize that something was seriously wrong with me.
Books like BEYOND BLUE give me hope. Depression isn't something that you can just get over, it's something that you either learn how to manage or it manages you. Even after years of treatment, research and trying to figure myself out, I'm still learning something everyday. Reading about topics that hit close to home help to reassure me that I'm not the only one which is exactly what depression tells you. Learning from others' experiences is therapy in itself and I'm so glad that Therese cared enough to share her story with the world.
