Depression Painted through Poetry

Teacher turned poet imparts her experiences while fighting depression

Union Center, Wisconsin – WEBWIRE

How do people with depression conquer its struggles every day?

What does depression feel like? How do people with depression conquer its struggles every day? We may not totally understand it, but readers can get a glimpse of the answers through Barbara Mezera’s book, From Despair to Hope and Healing.
Mezera’s effort is a compilation of poems that narrates her struggles and triumphs as she went through depression. She shares how anxiety and self-doubt affected her life in many ways and how she overcame these challenges through time.
“Going through the ups and downs . . . is a dark and trying time. If I can offer comfort to others, then I am more than willing to share my poems with them,” said the author.
One Goodreads member commented that the book From Despair to Hope and Healing doesn’t prepare anyone with how authentic the poems can get, adding, “I have never read a book that could tell me about a person’s life in such an intimate way . . . it was a personal autobiography in a way.”
Barbara Mezera discussed more details about her book in America Tonight with Kate Delaney.
