Stacey Smith wrote Sabotaged by Emotions while experiencing severe depression. Her heart's desire is to share the reality of living with painful emotions, and how to experience inner peace and happiness once again. Sabotaged by Emotions will help people who suffer from a mental disability, the people who support them, and give insight into the emotional pain to the medical community. There are a variety of approaches she embarks on to get better. Her spiritual life is foundational. Psychiatric drugs, electroconvulsive therapy, and counseling in Dialectical Behavior Therapy help tremendously. She works with a medical doctor who is also a Natural Pathologist to regain her physical health. Overcoming painful emotions is not only an emotional challenge; it is spiritual and physical as well.
I have had the privilege of knowing Stacey from the beginning of her healing journey. There have been many dark days, when Stacey felt she could not go on. Thanks to her faith, family, friends, tenacity, and amazing creativity, she is experiencing major breakthroughs. This book is a chronicle of the struggles and of the tools used to help her find the hope and strength to come out on the other side of her emotional and mental challenges.
