Swimming, Not Drowning is a memoir in verse that takes the reader on the poet's journey through her struggles with an anxiety disorder that often leads to depression. The first part, "Deep Water," explores the author's childhood, family, personality, fears, disappointments, the generalized public unfamiliarity with mental illness, and other factors conducive to the onset of depression. The second part, "Drowning," depicts what it feels like to be trapped in the disabling claws of the depression monster. The last part, "Swimming," is a testament of hope, reassuring the reader that with patience, understanding, and support, everybody can learn how to "swim" the deep waters without drowning.
