Title: Fighting the Blues as a Black Woman: How I Survived Suicidal Depression
Author: Tanisha L. Herrin
Headline: One Woman’s Journey to Healthy Living
One would think this book is a general self-help book to help guide a person work their way through depression but it is much deeper than that. Tanisha L. Herrin shares her personal journey of battling depression from her early teen years to her mid-twenties. She lets the reader experience pain that she felt as a child that did not fit into the “in” crowd during elementary and high school and to how the loss of her mother affected her mental state.
This book is not a clinical know-how on ways to overcome depression. It is a woman bluntly sharing her journey and the methods that she used to begin living a more positive lifestyle. While I have never battled depression, this was a great read to help me to notice the signs of depression and to have suggestions if I encounter someone that could be battling it. For that reason, I would recommend this book. I commend Tanisha L. Herrin for sharing so much of her person life with the public.
