Running From Hippos by Brenda Diskin

indie ebook cover

Anyone who has suffered physical or mental abuse of any kind, or has been to that dark place that we know as depression, will be able to relate to what I have experienced. This book will prove to you that you are not alone, that there are many like us.
If you live with someone who has suffered, or is still suffering from the effects of trauma and depression, this book will give you an insight into what they have been through.
After enduring years of being a victim of other people’s lust and aggression, insecurity and self-loathing paved the way to sexual and physical abuse and brutal treatment. Rebellious, lonely, and self-destructive, I relied on my ‘stronger self’ to bear much of my trauma. Soon, I found myself on the rollercoaster called depression. Running From Hippos explains how I managed to stand up to my aggressors, drag myself back from that terrible ‘dark place’ and learn how to live again.
Often extremely emotional, sometimes funny, occasionally thought-provoking, this is my story.
