You just bleed to know you are alive. We have all heard these lyrics which are very suggestive of a clinical debilitating depression and remind me of the strong woman Emme Aronson who helped her husband Phillip grapple with his suicidal life-draining melancholy.
The couple wrote a book in which Emme brilliantly described the loneliness and onerous burden of raising a child while her husband was paralyzed by depression. She also movingly portrayed the challenge of not sinking into the same type of abject mental misery her beloved spouse was experiencing. She mentions how he was depriving himself of emotional, intellectual, and physical nourishment which, of course, compounded the intensity of the wretched, mind twisting depression.
Reading their book titled ,Morning Has Broken, A Couple’s Journey Through Depression, can only help couples going through the same dismal plight.
