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

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
