About the Book
Living with depression can be like a nasty roommate that never leaves. You can hide in your room, but the effects of that roommate are still there. They affect everything you do and it's easy to think it's just how life is going to be.
After being hunted by depression and nearly losing the battle on multiple occasions I was tired. Tired of constantly wondering when it would come around again. Just waiting for it to destroy anything positive that was going on in my life. Leaving a path of destruction no matter where I ran or tried to hide. Depression was always just around the corner. Doctors wanted to pump me full of mind numbing drugs that sucked every ounce of what little joy I had and would leave me a shell of a human being. I knew I had to do something...
I was tired of being hunted.
I was tired of just trying to survive.
I was frustrated with the perceived lack of support and understanding.
I was done with the excuses!
It was time for me to find a better way. It was time to put on my technical skills hat and begin the journey that would change my life forever.
I still strive to make things better, but I have already come a long way since I began this journey. Now I want to share what I've learned in hopes to helping others make sense of what is really going on.
I was tired of being hunted by the darkness monster so I found a way to turn the hunt around.
Here's how I did it. I hope this information will give you a better understanding of yourself and arm you with the tools to find what works for you.
It's time for you to turn the hunt around! Are you ready?
