Being a mom with anxiety, I often wonder if I need some help other than just reading my Bible. While taking Inositol does help, I still wonder about those who choose to take prescription drugs for their anxiety and/or depression. I don’t quite understand how much of this is affected by spiritual influences (or lack of) and by physical ailments or chemical imbalances.
That’s why I chose to read the complimentary copy of the book below. The author shares the same concern; where do we draw the line or is there a middle ground. It also addresses the lacking areas in the medical area as far as diagnosis.
While the terminology was described along the way, I still found it hard to read. I had to slow down and think about what each term meant before proceeding. It is a pretty thin book, so the slower reading didn’t cause too much of a hardship.
I do recommend the book for the content itself despite this one hangup. I think a second read through might be more insightful, as I will be more familiar with the terms being used.
