Description

In Dog Medicine: How My Dog Saved Me From Myself, A Memoir, you’ll find a moving and immersing story about enduring love in the face of depression and hopelessness, and a dog that would change a young woman’s fate. It’s a deeply moving memoir that is soulfully told, heart-moving, and sure to become one of your favorites.

The book tells the story of Julie Barton, who at twenty-two collapsed on her kitchen floor in Manhattan. She was one year out of college and severely depressed. Summoned by Julie’s incoherent phone call, her mother raced from Ohio to New York and took her home. Haunted by troubling childhood memories, Julie continued to sink into suicidal depression. Psychiatrists, therapists, and family tried to intervene, but nothing reached her until the day she decided to do one hopeful thing: adopt a Golden Retriever puppy she named Bunker. Dog Medicine captures the anguish of depression, the slow path to recovery, the beauty of forgiveness, and the astonishing ways animals can help heal even the most broken hearts and minds.

    Not everyone may understand this book, but necessary for those who would.

    Anyone who has some kind of mental illness, or knows of someone who does, can maybe grasp this story.

    Beautiful Story

    By great on Jun 21, 2018

    This book was absolutely amazing. It truly painted a picture that I feel is relevant to so many people. I could see my life being mirrored as I read. I was crying by the end of the book. It was a great book and I definitely recommend it to all the animal lovers out there!
