Fievre. Do you find the usual depression books are not helping you create your own path to healing? This poetry collection is designed for those suffering from mental illness and the people closest to them. Paloma is faking it. On the outside, she's A-Okay: she's electrified at work; there is a cadence in her step as she walks her dog; she posts memes on Facebook; and she keeps up with most relationships. Looks can be deceiving, however: Inside, Paloma is just going through the motions, and she feels like things are spiraling out of control. But when things are at their darkest, dawn arrives with clarity and focus, and with it, healing. Paloma learns to value small glimmering moments of joy rather than searching for constant happiness, thus building hope for her future. A manifesto for life. The poems in this book address the emotional contradictions of depression, anxiety, grief and loss, guiding the reader down a path to healing, fortitude, and life-sustaining joy. In this inspiring and heartwarming book, readers will: Understand how to make happiness a decision, even when they don't feel it in their bones Find out how to exercise patience and self-acceptance Attract hope and purpose back into their life Experience this lovely collection of poems to help you finally be Happy, Okay?
