Journeys and Discoveries through Clinical Depression and Anxiety
This book won’t tell you…
- That your suffering is your own fault.
- That simplistic cures or segulos will solve everything.
- That after you read this your pain will magically disappear.
Depression and anxiety are excruciatingly painful. They are among the most difficult challenges of life. This book will not paint a rosy picture of the world and tell you that you can become blissfully happy if you just appreciate your gifts.
In Calling Out to You, meet the brave people who have struggled with depression, anxiety, phobias, and other mental disorders, and who have grown in the process. Hear from rabbis, doctors, therapists, and other professionals who offer sage advice and heartfelt encouragement.
Although we yearn to connect to Hashem, we can often be over powered by pain, anger, and resentment. Calling Out to You shows how to seek Hashem from within one’s troubles, without denying or minimizing them. We can strive to see the purpose in the lows and develop ways to overcome our most difficult challenges.
In this groundbreaking anthology, Tehilla Edelman provides a refreshing, honest, and insightful look at clinical depression and anxiety. Those going through similar experiences, as well as their loved ones, will find support and empathy in these sincere and inspiring stories.
