High Tides

High Tides
Wading Through Depression - Every Day
Candace Andrews
Candace has suffered from depression for many years. She wrote this book as a chronicle of her journey through the waters of depression in hopes that some of her struggles and the things that help her with resonate with others. Everyone suffers from depression differently. Different things trigger or help, no one person is exactly the same. But by sharing her battle with this disease, the author hopes to help the reader realize that they are not alone. She also hopes that by opening discussing what does and does not work for her will help someone else find the things that help them. She uses the analogy of tide water to describe her depression and how it affects her.

The book was interesting from a purely story stand point. But I also gleaned some helpful insights into how to not only deal with depression, but also how to deal with the emotions that often overwhelm the person. The book is small, but it's a book that is packed with comfort and hope for someone suffering from the disease. I would recommend this to anyone who has been touched by depression, either themselves or someone around them.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
