Why I Jumped
My True Story of Postpartum Depression, Dramatic Rescue & Return to HopeBook - 2006
On July 19, 2004, an amazing video broke across news programs. After a high-speed chase to the top of the Tower Drive Bridge in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a young woman stopped, walked to the edge of the bridge--and jumped. A state trooper raced over, and in a miracle of timing and determination, snagged the woman's wrist as she started the plunge. Other officers ran to his aid, and they pulled the woman to safety while the police cam captured the action. Here, that woman tells her story, giving us a glimpse of what led to such deep depression that suicide seemed the only answer. From abuse and rejection in her childhood to severe postpartum depression after the birth of her second child, Tina has overcome incredible odds to get where she is today.--From publisher description.
