My Book: “People Don’t Get It”; A Journey Through Depression

I previously presented this as a series of blog posts and but always intended to compile it into this book format for download as a PDF. It amounts to 10 chapters that document one of my recent struggles with anxiety and depression. In it, I describe my experiences and many of the things that I learned along the way. Writing it helped my recovery. I’m hoping that reading it will help the recovery of someone else. Everyone’s journey through mental illness is a little different, but here is how it was for me.

Here it is as a PDF:
