When Going Through Hell...Don’t Stop!: A Survivor's Guide to Overcoming Anxiety and Clinical Depression is the audiobook version of the print book that was published in 2000. This compelling memoir tells the dramatic story of author Douglas Bloch’s battle with, and ultimate recovery from, a life-threatening depressive illness.
After a series of personal losses and setbacks, Douglas plummeted into a major depressive episode. For the next 10 months, he struggled to stay alive in the face of overwhelming despair as unbearable anxiety attacks alternated with dark, suicidal depressions.
Although the managed care mental health system failed to provide him with effective treatment, Douglas devised his “daily survival plan for living in hell" - a holistic recovery program consisting of physical, mental, and emotional self-care that kept him afloat until he was ultimately healed.
