La angustia me paralizaba por completo. Pasaba horas enteras gritando sin control. No me llegaban las palabras ni los argumentos de consuelo. De hecho, los extremos se tocaban.

This book might have been a weird one to start with, but it does make me want to read more of his work. The journal was not published until years later when friends convinced him to share it. I did like this way of thinking about suffering. And I liked what he said in his conclusion. There is hardly a day without some dark clouds drifting by.
