In her first published work, Rebecca Lombardo collects her internationally followed blog into the pages of It’s Not Your Journey. Rebecca shares her struggles with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, self-injury, and recovery from a suicide attempt.
Rebecca candidly reveals her real and raw feelings on these subjects, as well as addressing other issues that have contributed to her downward spiral and eventual climb out of her own pit of despair. Issues such as the loss
of her mother to lung cancer, the death of her brother, abandonment from friends and family members due to her hospitalization, and more.

I found this book to be really interesting, I loved the way the author wrote it. To me it felt more personal and from the heart. I like reading a book especially a biography that is written by the person.
There wasn’t much info about Bipolar, I don’t really know much about bipolar, but I do understand about depression and anxiety. Just those two things are scary enough but to add bipolar and PTSD? That is not the way it should be.
This book is very emotional and she tells it from her heart. I am glad she wrote her story; I am sure someone needs to read it as well. I am glad I was able to read it. She writes this like a diary which for me is easy to read. I read it in one sitting and then went to bed. I advise this is not bedtime reading. I personally have some depression, anxiety and I have experience a tragic loss. I could relate to some of things she was writing about and gave me some insight as well.
I want to wish the author Rebecca Lombardo and her husband well and thanks for telling your story and writing it down.
I want to thank promotional book tours for the ARC so I could read and review.
I received a free copy of a book in exchange for an honest review
