Book Review of The Novel Vein Fire by Lucia Adams

fireveinIt’s okay to say no sometimes, Hannah.

Sometimes you go through things in life and it’s a little more than you can emotionally handle. That’s the truth about life and it’s written in this book. Hannah is a broken and scared woman. She was once a girl who, like most of us, experimented and learned from the lessons that came from the things that we tried out while growing up.

This is more than just a coming of age story about a girl who struggles with dealing with trauma, chronic pain, mental illness and drug abuse. This is a story that may disturb you, shake you, break you, trigger you and make you feel all mixed up inside. However, you may just feel something. And if that is what you want, then this is it. 3.5 stars for Hannah.

Mental Health Talk: Guest Blog Post Author Felicia Johnson

journal

Felicia Johnson guest blogs on Mental Health Talk and shares how she suffered from depression and child abuse while growing up. It was writing that helped her through those years; a catalyst for finding an invaluable form of therapy and her voice.

This has lead Felicia to write her first novel titled Her. Based on her own experiences and those with a close friend who she lost to mental illness, she has created a story about survival and the complexity of living with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Review of When You Bleed To Death by Jeremy Bronaugh

It’s BPD Awareness Month and Mental Health Awareness Month. What books would be appropriate to read and review other than books based on mental health and BPD. This book takes the reader into the mind of a young man who struggles with BPD and various emotional and mental health issues stemming from the disturbances in his every day life and unstable relationships.

This is my review of When You Bleed To Death by Jeremy Bronaugh.

when you bleed

Brody is depressed and self destructive. Struggling to cope with his girlfriend’s suicide, Brody turns to drugs and self harming for relief. His friendships are short lived and unhealthy, and he doesn’t seem to be able to keep up with school. It seems like his life just can’t get better. Perhaps it’s because Brody runs away, pushes people away and hurts himself especially when he feels like he’s being wronged.

His relationship with Tiffany is very troubled. He stalks her when they break up and against his better judgement seems to dig himself a deeper hole each time they try to reconcile. Just when you think things could get better for Brody, it seems to go in the opposite direction. The way the book ends leaves me wondering about him and what route he decided to take. It seems like a sad ending that you may be able to figure out. Although, I do wonder if it’s actually what I think may be the end of Brody’s story…

In other ways, Kristen is not like other kids her age. She knows something is wrong with her. Kristen feels like an utter failure. She is unable to please her abrasive mother, and scared to confront Jack, her abusive stepfather. She is also unable to protect Nick from Jack, making her fell all the more helpless. Adding to her problems, she knows she will never be as beautiful as her best friend Lexus. Kristen finds solace in self-injury, and the company of Mr. Sharp, her imaginary friend who encourages her feelings of self-loathing.

After a failed suicide attempt, Kristen is placed in the Bent Creek mental hospital, where she is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. While in the hospital, she meets a group of peers suffering with their own mental illnesses, and a compassionate staff of doctors and counselors. From there, Kristen begins her journey to survival. She discovers the circumstances that brought her to this breaking point, struggles to understand her mental illness, and fights to be a survivor against her own worst enemy: her self-blame.
Kristen’s tale of endurance illustrates the complex illness of Borderline Personality Disorder. Readers – including those suffering from BPD and their friends and family – can glean insight into the illness from Kristen’s humanity. Her story is an example of how, if we try to push the past away, we are either doomed to repeat it or let it haunt us to our graves.
