3. Excerpt from Too Late in the Afternoon

Reflecting on the path of my transformation, it becomes clear that following Dave’s suggestions at that point in the road was pivotal. I became too busy to spend large amounts of time thinking about myself. Structure invaded my comings and goings. The situational side of my depression was being rewritten with new purpose and meaning. God had mercy on me, though I had not yet drawn near Him. I couldn’t have done it without Dave. He saved my soul from relentless and on-going depression.   – Mitch Jasper

Having a friend, guide, or coach in helping a person who is depressed is critical. Mitch Jasper needed Dave Logan in the novel written by Patrick Day.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
