If you are experiencing a dark night of despair, you are not alone. Statistics tell us that roughly one-third of the population is depressed at any given time. This means that you are either depressed, have recently been depressed, or are headed toward depression. It is wise to be ready when that ogre, depression, rears its ugly head. Reading this book will help you understand the disease and teach you coping strategies to deal with its terrifying grip. Debra Atlas shares her experiences with depression in You Aren’t Depression’s Victim. Using Debra’s compassionate guide will equip you to become a victor instead of a victim. Overcoming depression is possible. Debra gives hope and shows paths of action that will work if you commit to the plan.

Depression is real. Those who have experienced this monster of emotions can attest to its life-stealing power. However, Debra Atlas shows a better way of dealing with depression than being a victim. In her book, You Aren’t Depression’s Victim, Debra takes you through her life with depression. She also explains how she overcame it and then leads you to develop a personal, customized strategy for success. It is always wise to listen to someone who has been there and done that. They speak from experience and not just from theory. Theories are grand, but experience is better. Life is full of events that can lead to depression in the form of either the blues or true clinical depression. Our mindset helps determine in which direction we will go. Realize you always have a choice, and making a good decision helps keep you off the edge of the slippery slope that leads to depression. Read this book and take control of your life.
