"Although I've read about depression over the years, I've never seen it described so clearly (and so painfully) by someone whose depression colors his world."  I am 14 years old. H.A. Gray Junior. High is staging a production of Jesus Christ Superstar. During the performance and without reason, I walk into a darkened part of the school and start to cry.  Fifteen years later, while cooking dinner with my girlfriend, it happens again, I start to cry. I don't know why. I feel helpless. Something is wrong. "It's a beautiful and touching account of the ways in which anxiety and depression can either ruin or change your life for the better." "The author doesn't give us a packaged formula for beating depression, as so many books do. He provides us with genuine life experiences.""The author shares his journey in a very intimate way, and as a result, the book is much more readable than a textbook on depression written from a clinical perspective." Stress, anxiety and depression. Dealing with symptoms is of little help; we need to address the cause. From childhood trauma and teenage anxiety, to midlife depression and isolation, Dark Angel is a field guide a through the swamp. Personal reflections, research on mental health, the difficult work and the road to a stress free mind. How do we find our true nature, our calling? What is anxiety? What is depression? Can we find meaning in it? Does the chemical imbalance create depression or does depression create the imbalance? There is room in the mind for unpleasant thoughts just as there is room in the sky for a thunderstorm. Here lies our work and it is difficult but we have a choice--to rest in anxiety and depression, or walk through the door.
