Beyond Blue: Surviving Depression & Anxiety and Making the Most of Bad Genes
Beyond Blue is a book everybody interested or battling with mental illness should read. It is written by Therese Borchard, a successful blogger (Beliefnet.com) and writer who herself struggles with depression and has undergone years of therapy and hospital stays. It is an honest and hope-inspiring story of her own struggles as well as a self-help book. But it isn’t all doom and gloom - her style of writing is witty and, at the same time, full of important information about the subject of depression. In her book she tackles serious conditions such as postpartum depression, addictions, medication and self-esteem.
This is a highly sensitive, beautifully written, informative and, at the same time, humorous book about depression, the daily struggles and hope. It is an honest account of the author’s life with depression.
