While I'm grateful to have my pieces selected to represent my experience in dealing with anxiety and depression over the years, it isn't about me. Each and every one of the pieces presented by the poets and writers in this anthology has experienced or been a witness to the devastating effects of the various forms and varying degrees of mental illness. For many of us, being open about how we were truly feeling was difficult as most of the population just doesn't discuss a perceived weakness. It would be shameful, even embarrassing, and unproductive, something I dealt a lot with when I was younger. So I was quiet about it. I didn't even have a name for it until I was much older.
This book certainly doesn't celebrate the things which affect us but it does openly discuss how a person reacts to it, feels about it and how to even celebrate the byproducts of it. Adversity can foster empowerment, especially when one is supported throughout the process and beyond.
To anyone who truly wants to understand how a person with mental illness feels, I would recommend this anthology for valuable insight.
