Beating Depression: Inspirational Stories of Hope and Recovery
I had the opportunity during 2010 to think about contributing to a book that was going to be published in 2011 where there were going be a selected stories of hope and recovery. As my own book has never really been finished, I thought this would be a nice way of telling my story, but with less of my own time needed to polish, proof read and print. I wrote the story over a couple of months and it went back and forward a few times for tweaking. The end result is a now complete and out in print. There are 8 stories and mine is number 6 and is called "It's been a long time coming". If you do get to read this book, I hope you enjoy it and feel free to contact me for comments!
