Category: Biography & Autobiography
After the death of a loved one, M. J. Rex loses focus, drive, and all hope that she will ever be the person she has always dreamed of becoming. Forced to make a life-altering decision about whether to move on with her own life or die in a figurative sense, she stumbles through life one soap opera at a time. Depressed People Make Me Sleepy follows M. J. through her childhood from about the age of fifteen into adulthood and the beginnings of her career as a forensic psychologist. Her struggle to be the best at what she does, however, places her face-to-face with unresolved matters that if left unresolved could destroy her and the life she has built for herself. Her story is plagued by both highs and lows that will make you laugh and cry aloud. Its colorful language also places the reader front row for every drama that unfolds chapter after chapter. And just when you, the reader, are beginning to share in M. J.’s loss and anger, you are uplifted by the sheer determination and joy created by her ability to triumph despite everything she goes through. M. J. highlights her truth about what it is like to be a psychologist who is stumbling through life, trying to find purpose while working as a treating clinician. While working with both sex offenders and mentally ill patients, she denies her own symptoms refusing to acknowledge she may be more like her patients than she cares to admit. The clash of everything personal and everything professional makes for an intensely thought-provoking read.

Until the early 1980s, there was no official diagnosis for depression in children. But children can, and do, become depressed. In fact, the National Institute of Mental Health now estimates that 2.5 million youngsters under eighteen have experienced clinical depression--and the real number may be higher still. "Help Me, I'm Sad" discusses how to tell if your child is at risk; how to spot symptoms; depression's link with other problems and its impact on the family; teen suicide; finding the right diagnosis, therapist, and treatment; and what you can do to help. For parents who have—or suspect they may have—depressed children, here is practical, easy-to-understand information from a compassionate and trustworthy source.

A million people all over the world suffer from depression. This psychological illness not only saps the affected person of all their energy, it often paints their world inky black. Despondency, despair, shame and sadness become constant companions – like a horrible, vicious and spiteful black dog. More often than not, as family member, partner, friend or colleague, you find yourself absolutely helpless in the face of this illness. It was the same thing in my case – and still is. Following my wife’s diagnosis, I suddenly found myself facing a challenge that seemed a bit too overwhelming to describe in words. I started to write a kind of journal, which gradually developed into this ‘guide for the loved ones of a person suffering from depression’. What I want to achieve with these words is essentially something selfish: I’m helping myself by going over this whole story. I’ve written down situations and incidents in which her black dog pisses on us and behaves as if it were the driving force in our daily life. I’ve written down how I deal with such situations, how I react to such phases – sometimes badly and sometimes a bit better, sometimes with courage and sometimes without, sometimes out loud and sometimes quietly. And, finally, I’ve made a note of what works, what helps us and me. And what perhaps might also help other people in similar situations. How I can help my wife in giving that wretched cur a piece of her mind and send it back to its little crate. And how amidst all this I try to stay positive and cheerful, to celebrate the here and now. The suggestions given by me here are not based on professional medical knowledge. I’m not a psychologist, physician, or shaman. I’m a companion who wishes to share his experiences and insights with other companions. I hope with all my heart that I’m able to help you (and your loved one) a little with this small book. Keep on walking! Daniel

Washington Post's Top 10 Graphic Novels 2012 'An unflinching and frequently unforgiving narrative of what it means to have bipolar disorder' - John Crace, Guardian 'Marbles isn't just a great story; it's proof that artists don't have to be tortured to be brilliant.' - Entertainment Weekly Shortly before her thirtieth birthday, Forney was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Suffering from (but enjoying) extreme mania, and terrified that medication would cause her to lose creativity, she began a long struggle over many years to find mental stability while retaining her creativity. Searching to make sense of the popular idea of the 'crazy artist', she finds inspiration from the lives and work of other artists and writers who suffered from mood disorders, including Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe, William Styron, and Sylvia Plath. She also researches the clinical aspects of bipolar disorder, including the strengths and limitations of various treatments and medications, and what studies tell us about the conundrum of attempting to "cure" an otherwise brilliant mind. Darkly funny and intensely personal, Forney's memoir provides a humorous but authentic glimpse into the effects of a mood disorder on an artist's work, as she shares her own story through black-and-white graphic images and prose. Written & illustrated by Ellen Forney - best known for her work on National Book Award-winning The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.

A comprehensive corpus analysis of adolescent health communication is long overdue – and this book provides it. We know comparatively little about the language adolescents use to articulate their health concerns, and discourse analysis of their choices can shed light on their attitudes towards and beliefs about health and illness. This book interrogates a two million word corpus of messages posted by adolescents to an online health forum. It adopts a mixed method corpus approach to health communication, combining both quantitative and qualitative techniques. Analysis in this way gives voice to an age group whose subjective experiences of illness have often been marginalized or simply overlooked in favour of the concerns of older populations.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | From the diplomat Putin wants to interrogate—and has banned from Russia—comes a revelatory inside account of US-Russia relations across the three decades following the Cold War. In 2008, when Michael McFaul was asked to leave his perch at Stanford and join an unlikely presidential campaign, he had no idea that he would find himself at the beating heart of one of today’s most contentious and consequential international relationships. As President Barack Obama’s adviser on Russian affairs, McFaul helped craft the United States’ policy known as “reset” that fostered new and unprecedented collaboration between the two countries. And then, as US ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014, he had a front-row seat when this fleeting, hopeful moment crumbled with Vladimir Putin’s return to the presidency. This riveting inside account combines history and memoir to tell the full story of US-Russia relations from the fall of the Soviet Union to the new rise of the hostile, paranoid Russian president. From the first days of McFaul’s ambassadorship, the Kremlin actively sought to discredit and undermine him, hassling him with tactics that included dispatching protesters to his front gates, slandering him on state media, and tightly surveilling him, his staff, and his family. From Cold War to Hot Peace is an essential account of the most consequential global confrontation of our time.

Journalist Maximillian Potter uncovers a fascinating plot to destroy the vines of La Romance-Conti, Burgundy's finest and most expensive wine. In January 2010, Aubert de Villaine, the famed proprietor of the Domaine de la Romance-Conti, the tiny, storied vineyard that produces the most expensive, exquisite wines in the world, received an anonymous note threatening the destruction of his priceless vines by poison—a crime that in the world of high-end wine is akin to murder—unless he paid a one million euro ransom. Villaine believed it to be a sick joke, but that proved a fatal miscalculation and the crime shocked this fabled region of France. The sinister story that Vanity Fair journalist Maximillian Potter uncovered would lead to a sting operation by some of France's top detectives, the primary suspect's suicide, and a dramatic investigation. This botanical crime threatened to destroy the fiercely traditional culture surrounding the world's greatest wine. Shadows in the Vineyard takes us deep into a captivating world full of fascinating characters, small-town French politics, an unforgettable narrative, and a local culture defined by the twinned veins of excess and vitality and the deep reverent attention to the land that runs through it.
