Description - Bessie Is My Mother's Name by Thelma Ferguson
Thelma Ferguson, BS, MBA, is an Author and Financial Auditor/ Consultant to Fortune 100 Corporations. This is her first publication, March 2008. However, it promises to take you on an emotional rollercoaster, as she reveals first-hand the consequences of growing up within two generations of mothers suffering from severe depression and the effect their mental illness had on her entire family. A leading psychiatrist, Psychology Today, contends that many of the problems we've always blamed on character flaws may be due to mild versions of full-blown mental disorders like depression. Every troublesome personality likely has its roots in an unsuspected brain difference. However, life changed when I learned what it must have been like for my mother and grandmother, whom suffered with depression all their lives. The impulse to blame them for my problems lost its power. That profound haunting sense of shame that I had felt most of my life lifted as I was able to forgive myself for my past thoughts and actions. This book will prove to be a source for examining your feelings as you live through my heartache, acceptance and forgiveness issues.
