In her first published work, Rebecca Lombardo collects her internationally followed blog into the pages of It’s Not Your Journey. Rebecca shares her struggles with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, self-injury, and recovery from a suicide attempt.
Rebecca candidly reveals her real and 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.

This book is a rare real candid look into the life of someone that suffers from depression and bipolar disorder. I personally suffer from depression. This book however helped me to understand my husband better. He suffers from severe depression disorder and bipolar disorder.
Things have not always been easy for us just like they haven’t for the author. I actually applaud her courage to write this book. I know in the case of my husband he tends to hide his symptoms and doesn’t want people to judge him because of his illness and from his past mistakes.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that either suffers from depression/bipolar disorder of has a loved one that does.
