"My Name is Hope: Anxiety, depression, and life after melancholy" - John Mark Comer
Another awesome book on a heavy topic. This book found its way to me at the most perfect time. On paper my life was close to perfect and I should have been happy. I wasn’t; I was battling anxiety on a level I had not ever experienced, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t keep focus I was overwhelmed and debilitated. I knew prescriptions were the quick and easy solution. It could provide a temporary relief and was a quick workaround. That’s not me, I want to find the root cause and come to a healthy solution that will provide a long term resolution. I was ready to dig deep and do the work. This book was an action plan that allowed me to identify what Anxiety is and where is comes from allowing empowering me the ability to start to do the work to get back to where I needed to be. Depression and Anxiety are complicated medical issues, this book might not be the solution for everyone but I will tell you it’s the best place to start.
