Abstract:

"A poignant look at one woman's fight for herself, told in expressively scrawled drawings and commentary. Author Elizabeth Swados takes us on an intimate journey through her long-time struggle with depression that is by turns tender, funny, and uplifting, and will resonate with everyone affected by depression and those who love them. Through the author's charming and frenzied drawings, readers get a unique look into the experience of severe depression, from the black cloud forming in the horizon, to the strained relationships, the side effects of anti-depressants, and the difficulty getting out of bed and functioning. For the many people who suffer from depression, this is a reminder that they are not alone and that their experiences are legitimate and deserve to be part of mainstream awareness. This is an engaging and uplifting story of an illness that has been stigmatized for too long"-
