Reflections From the Abyss
An inside look at depression and mental illness and a follow-up book to "The Enemy Within" that deals with the psychological nature of mood disorders and how they negatively impact the thought processes of human beings. This book delves into the complex nature of cognitive distortions, along with all of the damaging effects they can have on the brain's ability to function properly... and specifically, the negative thought patterns that fuel depression/anxiety and sabotage our perceptions of the world. Personal, informative, and chalk full of invaluable wisdom and insight, the author takes great pains in detailing exactly how to respond, when loved ones are hurting and suffering from these debilitating diseases... including what to say, what not to say, and how to truly help yourself and those closest to you, who are in a depressive state. Philosophical, poignant, poetic and highly personal, this is a MUST read for any and all who may be facing what has now become an epidemic in our culture. It offers resources, guidance, hope, and a wealth of detailed information from one who has stared into the darkest corners of perception and overcome the demons that reside within.
