Depression is a sly and vicious enemy. It is silent and deceitful. It tricks you into thinking that the pain is over, then it attacks you with a wave crashing all over your sanity. I have suffered with depression after suffering from an ectopic pregnancy. Being overjoyed for a couple of weeks after finding out that I was pregnant, I had to have a surgery to have my baby removed from my fallopian tube. Otherwise, I would have died. After the surgery, I suffered from major lapses of depressive episodes and I never thought I would make it.
A member in my support group recommended a book called The Destroy Depression System written by James Gordon, and it has saved my life and my relationship with the people I love. Through this book, I have found the strength and focus to see the positivity in even the smallest aspects of life. Before reading this book, my emotional pain branched out as physical pain and I began to suffer migraines and insomnia. This book allowed me to take control of my life, see things in perspective, and give myself the time to heal and recuperate.
Depression is usually shrugged off by many people and I found it very challenging to talk to even the closest of my friends about how I genuinely felt. I felt alone, scared and even thought of taking my own life. I am filled with gratitude that I have experienced the radiant enlightenment that James Gordon’s work has provided. Reading the book felt like a guiding hand that strengthened me through the most difficult moment of my life. It felt great to read something that comforted me and made me feel that I am not alone in this struggle. I stopped taking medication and I started repairing my relationships. My physical well-being has also returned and I have learned to love and take care of myself better. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has lost hope, or even if you just feel that no one is there for you. This book saved my life. Let it save yours, too.
