Item description for Why I Jumped: My True Story of Postpartum Depression, Dramatic Rescue & Return to Hope by Tina Zahn & Wanda Dyson...

Not long ago, network news carried the stunning video of a young woman trying to jump to her death off the Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge in Green Bay. By God's providence, the Wisconsin State trooper who had been chasing her, Les Boldt, caught her by her wrist just as she began her plunge to certain death, and with the help of other officers, lifted her to safety. That woman is Tina Zahn, and the story of her struggle with postpartum depression, and the severe darkness that led to her suicide attempt, will grip listeners. But this is not just a story of a dramatic rescue, but a triumphant story of her return to hope, as Mrs. Zahn frankly explores what led to her deep hopelessness, and the love and care that brought light back to her life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why I Jumped: My True Story of Postpartum Depression, Dramatic Rescue & Return to Hope?

honest and insightful  Apr 15, 2008
This book is very insightful about what drew one woman to the brink of suicide. Fortunately, her attempt was not successful. She has gone on to write an easy-to-read book that offers insight, awareness, and hope on the subject of suicide.
terrific read for depression sufferers and those who love them.  Feb 28, 2008
i read this book in one two hour sitting. it caught my eye at the local library and i simply couldn't put it down once i picked it up. tina has been through incredible hardships, amazing ups and downs, and has a gripping story to tell. anyone can relate to much of the heartaches, but i think the writing is effective in bringing in the reader to the story. it's a terrific read that had me in tears at the end, largely because i've gone through severe depression in my life too. it's definitely worth the two or three hours it will take you to read it.
Yo comprendo!  Jan 4, 2008
I received this book today and I cannot put it down. Thank you Tina for doing an excellent job of articulating the thoughts and feelings of a young innocent girl whose father was a monster and a mother who had my sympathy until page 46. The pastor of page 48 failed miserably as a spiritual leader. Both the mother and the pastor should have gone to the police. They never should have put the father and the marriage ahead of you. They should have protected you and they did not. I am only on page 51 and had to write this comment. You were an innocent precious litte girl Tina. Never forget that. Those adults will have to answer for their sins to the one who judges righteously.
Healing to those of us who have been in traumatic places  Sep 10, 2007
My first memory is of watching someone get shot with a machine gun. That was before things got really tough. After that my mom married someone who spent years abusing myself and several siblings. For anyone who has ever been abused as a child - this book will be a healing place. Tina addresses how every trauma we face as adults takes us back to the feeling of helplessness we struggled with, as children. And it wasn't just a feeling, there was no one to help us.

Tina also does a very good job of explaining the wishfullness of wanting your mom to 'rescue' you and yet realizing (one day when you are grown) that your mom was hanging on by her fingernails wondering how she would support 3 children without a 'man in the house'. Tima also does a wonderful job of explaining how 'abusers' can go to Church and read the Bible and make everyone around them think they are the 'nicest' people.

I have never experienced depression like Tina's - still this book was a healing place for me. I highly recommend it. It's encouraged me to one day write the story of my pain as well - in hopes that it could be someone elses's gain.

Why I Jumped  Apr 11, 2007
Good book if you want to try and understand what would make someone want to do this like I did. The brain works in mysterious ways...
