HOW DOES LOVE SURVIVE IN TIMES OF DEPRESSION?
When Alani Bach meets Jannis Küster, a love full of joie de vivre, empathy and re-spect begins. But then a rude awakening follows: Jannis more and more withdraws, he feels endlessly tired and unable to participate in life and soon he seems to have lost all interest in togetherness. Something dark has a firm grip on him. Grievously long time has to pass until the couple understands that depression has taken over their relationship.
Alina Bach accompanied her partner for nine years through darkness and exhaustion and calles it “our jouney through Jannis’ dark times”. Knowledgable, honest, exceed-ingly personal and unsentimental she is telling her story to support relatives of those suffering from depression. Based on her own experience, Alina Bach is placing their
needs, concerns, limits and potential in the focus.
She tells of worries, distress, fears and daily life troubles but above all about the fact that there is hope and that a period of depression can be a doable, endurable and even enriching experience – not least in terms of love.
Alina Bach ist das Pseudonym einer deutschen Journalistin und Kinderbuchautorin. Mit ihrem Mann und diversen Vierbeinern lebt sie am Rande der Allgäuer Hochalpen.
