Cerebral Palsy: A Story Finding the Calm After the Storm

Cerebral Palsy: A Story Finding the Calm After the Storm

Author: Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/01/2020

Living with cerebral palsy is enormously difficult. But what if you never knew you had it? This is the incredible story of Ilana Stankler. Born the second of premature twins, an hour apart, from a young age Ilana knew she was different, but for all the wrong reasons. A child of the 60s, Ilana experienced first-hand the way that disability was, at the time, so often brushed under the carpet, not spoken about. Her constant physical and mental struggles made her feel isolated, alone, frustrated, and misunderstood... and it took 46 years for her to find out why. Part memoir, part motivational guide, Cerebral Palsy: My story is Ilana's open and honest journey from an angry, confused child, knowing something was wrong, not knowing what was wrong, what her disability was, or that there was a diagnosis - to the `real' her - a courageous woman using her experiences and lessons to create inspiring messages about mental and physical health, resilience and change.

This Is Depression reveals: * how life experience, genetics, and hormones factor into depression, and explores the common overlap between depression and other mental and physical illnesses * how all areas of life can be impacted by depression-home, school, work, and relationships * how to communicate about mental illness, whether with your doctor or your boss, a rude friend or nosy co-worker, or loved ones * critical information about every available depression treatment - and those that are on the horizon-describing how antidepressants work, which treatments are worth taking, and which are useless... or even dangerous * when to consider psychotherapy, brain-stimulation treatments, mindfulness meditation, and exercise and what to expect from a therapeutic relationship * essential tools to support you in your recovery or your loved one on their journey. Depression can be a lonely, debilitating illness, but sufferers are not alone, and there is always a path forward. This book is the first step on that path.
