Thank you for your wonderful writing. I believe my husband and sons were inspired when they chanced upon you at your booksigning. My son was thrilled with your "Dragons Guard the Zoo." I have been inspired by "Brain-Switch Out of Depression."
Thank you again for your inspiration. I am most grateful.
Best regards, M
Many of these email exchanges I post on my blog (after editing for privacy) for, often, those suffering depression have questions and sometime answers that are helpful to others suffering the same thing. My blog is http://mobyjane.blogspot.com.
I wish your cousin a speedy recovery. I also suggest that in addition to Brainswitch, if your cousin is open to the idea, that you also get a copy of Depression is a Choice since your cousin has a degree in English.
Brainswitch is the neuroscience of how you get out of depression. Depression is a Choice is the philosophy of how you get out of depression and it is the psychological autobiography of my own journey into and out of manic depression. I think you can get a used copy of this on amazon.com for only a couple of dollars.
Dear A. B.-
Thank you for your thoughtful, considered responses. I will immediately forward this suggestion to my cousin.
We just spent a lovely day together. I confess I prayed for the right moment to share your writing and answers with her. (I primed the pump by sharing with her some of your wonderful poetry and exquisite illustrations.--Shel Silverstein has been replaced:-) )
I have shared your work with other family members, and we are all praying that she will take your writings and experiences to heart. I've ordered "Depression is a Choice," and look forward to reading it. Thank you for your guidance.
