My Book

For those that are interested, in won’t be long at all until my book is ready for print. The editing is done and it’s only a matter of time. I’m as nervous as a cat. I’d like to share one part of the book with you now, and that is the “blurb” (about the book) that will be on the back cover.

“To everyone who knew her, Kaitlyn Elkins was a happy, intelligent, compassionate and extremely talented young medical student with a bright future ahead. However, behind her warm smile and string of impressive achievements lurked a dark secret – depression; something that she hid so well from all those who knew and loved her.

This is the story about a mother’s quest to find some answers as to how her daughter, who seemed so happy on the outside, could hide such a dark, horrible depression that ultimately led to her suicide. It is a story about her wonderful daughter’s life, the lives she touched, the search for answers, the stigma of mental illness, the great love and deep bond they shared. The book also incorporates insightful experiences from other depression sufferers, contributions from Kaitlyn’s friends and views from medical professionals.

This heartrending memoir of love and loss also serves as a caution to parents, teachers, counselors and young people that depression can lurk among high achieving people, that they hide it expertly and, if not reported and treated, can lead to suicide.

It is a warning to everyone.”

About gatito2

My name is Rhonda. I'm a registered nurse, for the last 20 years, that has not been able to work since the day I learned of my daughter's death by suicide 4-12-13. (She actually died 4-11-13 and her body was not found until the 12th) Me and my husband have been married for 32 years and he's a wonderful man. We grieve in different ways. He works, I write. This is my journey through this horrible land of losing a child..
