In the Light of Darkness
This book/journal, which is entitled In the Light of Darkness, is based on the authors personal journey through deep depression, darkness, despair, hopelessness, suicide and back because of a lifetime of bipolar depression and eighteen years of sibling violence (domestic violence) in his home. Along with the bipolar depression, because of the abuse, he was also diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Oftentimes, there is a direct correlation between the two, mirror images of each other.
Both of these social stigmas are largely overlookedand this book was written to bring about and raise awareness concerning these toxic taboos, which have been hush-hush and swept under the rug of our social consciousness for far too long.
You may not always see the bruises or signs of deep, dark depression, but look closer, listen, and talk to people who are suffering. Show them you truly care and love them and that you are there for them no matter what they are going through because they matter. Lets stop the madness. Tell someone and/or seek professional help.
This book is Wade Robinsons story and is an intriguing, in-depth, dark journey through life and death.
