Bruce Ross knew something was wrong. He felt displaced and isolated from friends, family, and society. He had no one to turn to, and so he tried to cope with it himself. The fact that he had a disease called depression never entered his mind. He, like so many people, thought that only other people suffered from depression, not someone who appeared to be a well-adjusted, middle class person. From Dawn to Dusk to Daylight chronicles Rossas journey and struggles with depression, from his high school years until middle age. During this time, his promising start in life transformed into a dusk, in which Ross lived twenty-four hours of each day in a gloomy and unsettled existence. With eloquence and charm, he recaptures the joys of his childhood in Dartmouth, growing up with his buddies. Gradually, those times faded, and he found himself in the middle of his teenage years and the beginnings of his depression. Ross lived with the pain of depression and its atwin sister, a Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), for more than thirty-five years before achieving a breakthrough thanks to the experimental procedure known as Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). This exciting advancement in medical science shows great promise for depression sufferers in North America and around the world. From Dawn to Dusk to Daylight is the candid and revealing story of the trials and tribulations of living with depression and the relief DBS finally brought.I also knew it was the home of Ferguson Jenkins, who had pitched for the Chicago Cubs and was the only Canadian to ...
