)-- But You LOOK Just Fine offers candid counsel and acts as a user-friendly guide of innovative information and genuine compassion to men and women living with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety, seasonal affective disorder, eating disorder, and many other mood disorders. The book provides an in-depth discussion of each and explores vital topics including mood disorders and: disclosure; dating; looking one way while feeling another; impact on family; intimacy; employment and career; treatment options; spirituality; children and seniors; the connection between chronic pain and depression; thriving; despite a mood disorder the “worry window”; how to help someone with a mood disorder; the military; and mind-body medicine. But You LOOK Just Fine is also a unique tool for mental healthcare providers.
The authors bravely and lovingly present a remarkable series of personal portraits and telling profiles in the final chapter, sharing the stories and experiences of men and women who each live with various mood disorders and mental health challenges. These poignant examples – once anonymous faces seen in a crowd, or perhaps within one’s own circle of family, friends or coworkers – will serve as a valuable reminder to those facing depression and anxiety disorders that they are not alone.
Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross once said, "I'm not okay, you're not okay, and that's okay." Most people are carrying around something that causes them to feel "not quite right" or different from the masses. And guess what? It's okay. Locating others who are dealing with something similar can often lighten that burden. It is the authors’ greatest hope that But You LOOK Just Fine will act as “a support group in a book” as it has already been proclaimed, and as a system for others who may be suffering in silence or who may be feeling alone on their journey. They are not. They are invited to come inside and meet the people on the pages of But You LOOK Just Fine.
But You LOOK Just Fine in the second book in the “JUST FINE” series and is available through Amazon and Barnes & Nobles.
