Rebecca Lombardo collects her internationally followed blog into the pages of It’s Not Your Journey, named after her highly popular blog. Rebecca invites use to explore her struggles with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, self-injury, and recovery from a suicide attempt.
Rebecca shares her very real, raw feelings on these subjects, as well as addressing other issues that have contributed to her downward spiral and eventual climb out of her own pit of despair.
Issues such as the loss of her mother to lung cancer, the death of her brother, abandonment from friends and family members due to her hospitalization, and more. You learn precisely what she was thinking and why she proceeded through her life as she did.
We continue to stress that this book was never meant to act as a text book or take the place of medical advice given to you by your doctor. Sensitive subjects are addressed, such as self harm, suicide, and death. Therefore, there is a trigger warning for anyone that is sensitive to these issues. If you are a parent, please be sure your child is old enough to process this information.
This is my story. Your experiences with depression may be entirely different from mine. I ask that you please be respectful when you consider the steps I’ve taken in my life.
