This is a haiku and quotes poetry collection based on my illness of depression.

Trials and Tribulations of Depression: Haiku, Quotes, and Thoughts of the Soul describe personal feelings of depression felt by the author. Descriptions of thoughts and feelings felt during depression are some that most people have dealt with.

It's one thing to be "blue" when having a bad day or sadness when someone passes away. Even different kinds of stress are not easy to deal with. Trials and Tribulations of Depression: Haiku, Quotes, and Thoughts of the Soul goes into deeper details on when depression doesn't go away on it's own. When an individuals daily living routines have changed they may not be taking care of themselves, as they should.

Constant feels of sadness, worthlessness, hopelessness, helplessness, feeling "down" the majority of the time and lacking interest in daily activities. The symptoms just mentioned are just a few details of what this book covers. In the end the author does shed light by way of recovery from depression. Trials and Tribulations of Depression: Haiku, Quotes, and Thoughts of the Soul is an interesting twist to getting inside the depressed mind.    
Haiku sneak peaks:

No one understood
my deep emotional pain
suffered in silence.

It's not just a phase,
the eyes can tell a story
of constant sadness.

A daily struggle
losing focus on ones faith
is like losing strength.

Trials and Tribulations of Depression by Tanisha L. Herrin
Trials and Tribulations of Depression by Tanisha L. Herrin is a book about depression and steps on living through it. The first section has pages of haiku and each one deals with the structure of pain and isolation and wanting to run away! It lets you crawl into the head of a depressed person and it shows the feeling and emotional stage they are in and you want to escape. A lot of the haiku have overwhelming emotion, and it hits the spot very well of wanting to hide, and loneliness is bliss and it packs a heavy weight on your chest.

One that really spoke to me: which I go through a lot myself, being depressed is:

It's easy to say
the world would be better off
not seeing my face.

this one, and the statement is really tragic. And it stood out really strong and it was emotional because so many people, including myself, have to fight this! And so many of her haiku in this book, really hit the spot over and over like a hammer pounding a nail into your head.

The second and third part has intense quotes on depression. Some shocking words are wrapped up in these sections.

I would place this book in two categories: depression and recovery; and the last bit of the book, is about the recovery steps of life, and how to overstep depression! The good outcome of life, and the lies your mind tells you!

This book is very emotional and very strong. I would recommend it to anyone! And it's very easy to read!
