5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 18 April 2008
This review is from: Shoot the Damn Dog: A Memoir of Depression (Hardcover)
I have just finished reading "Shoot the damn dog" and may read it again. It is the best recount of depression I have read so far. Sally describes what happened to her and at the same time gives factual information on symptoms, available therapies, recent search studies etc. The links between B12 vitamin deficiency, thyroid problems and alcoholism to depression, which she describes, are interesting and worth checking up. OK, her opinion on the various therapies is subjective but she does not deny it. This is a story of a dark journey with a light at the end of the tunnel. Her way out of the tunnel was not a linear process. One step forward, two backward and three sideways, as she says. Connecting with others and "rearranging your emotions" is the message I got from it. If you read it you may get a different message but, definitively, this is a book to read if you know someone who suffers from depression or if you feel depressed yourself. In my opinion, this book can give hope.
