This book/journal, which is
entitled In the Light of Darkness, is based on the author’s 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 overlooked—and 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.
Let’s stop the madness. Tell someone and/or seek professional help.
This book is Wade Robinson’s story and is an
intriguing, in-depth, dark journey through life and death.
