Abstract:

Terrie had made it: she had her own company with high-profile clients--yet she was in constant pain, waking up in terror, overeating in search of relief. She finally collapsed, with no clue what was wrong or if there was a way out. She had hit rock bottom and got help. She learned her problem had a name--depression--and that many suffered from it, limping through their days, hiding their hurt. As she healed, her mission became clear: break the silence and help those who suffer. This book identifies emotional pain--uniquely and profoundly affecting the Black experience--as the root of lashing out through desperate acts. Terrie encourages us to face the truth about the issue that plunges our spirits into darkness, so that we can step into the healing light. The help the community needs is here: a clear explanation and a guide to finding relief.--From publisher description.
