Beyond Blue~Book Giveaway 5 Winners~

Beyond Blue book
Beyond Blue
Author: Therese Borchard

Giveaway now Closed. Congrats to Marjorie,Amanda,Bonnie,Jes and Timmy
Therese Borchard may be one of the frankest, funniest people on the planet. That, combined with her keen writing abilities has made her Beliefnet blog, Beyond Blue, one of the most trafficked blogs on the site.

BEYOND BLUE, the book, is part memoir/part self-help. It describes Borchard's experience of living with manic depression as well as providing cutting-edge research and information on dealing with mood disorders. By exposing her vulnerability, she endears herself immediately to the reader and then reduces even the most depressed to laughter as she provides a companion on the journey to recovery and the knowledge that the reader is not alone.

Comprised of four sections and twenty-one chapters, BEYOND BLUE covers a wide range of topics from codependency to addiction, poor body image to postpartum depression, from alternative medicine to psychopharmacology, managing anxiety to applying lessons from therapy. Because of her laser wit and Erma Bombeck sense of humor, every chapter is entertaining as well as serious.

I would love to read this book. As for your question if whether someone I know, or I myself am depressed, I would have to answer yes to this. I think Depression is more common than most people think it is. It is definitely something that is in my family. I also have a few friends that suffer from depression, whether it be clinical, situational, or postpartum.
