[Free Kindle] ☺ How to Weep in Public ♠ Catalizadores.co

Novak has a way of encapsulating the depressed mine and subverting the many preconceived notions we have about being depressed.My favorite section is when she talks about people who try to leave depression go to Starbucks to give the illusion of being with people I often find myself at Starbucks, but if anyone disturbs me I will be very upset at the social interaction.I highly recommend this to anyone who is depressed, knows someone who is working through depression, or really anyone in need of a great laugh. My husband bought me this after another weekend where I slumped around our house like a blob A blob that cried a lot and said mean things about herself.It was meant as a gift And I am pretty grateful for it.This book really hit home for me I am a depresso A high functioning one, sometimes, as I have maintained a facade with my full time job But still a depresso through and through.

Okay, I read a few reviews about this in a few different magazines and I was intrigued I was hoping to find a book that would be accessible to my clients I m a therapist who suffer from depression However, I was a bit put off as this is satire and dark humor all the way For someone who is truly and deeply troubled, I can t help but wonder if this would take them even closer to the edge It is basically a book by a depresso, as she calls herself, poking fun at herself and giving tips on how to stay depressed So, it s cute and funny, but also not So, I m not sure who this is for someone who is not depressed to make fun of those who are Those who are depressed to poke fun at themselves which who wants that or those who have been in a depression and now have come out the other side most likely this has got to be the one There were times that this was funny and clever and incredibly oh man, I can t believe she wrote that but overall, I just found it kind of sad. Once again, I find myself with much to say about a book I didn t likeI hope one day I ll have something to say about books I DO like But, haha, as a depressed person, I tell myself you can t talk about this book you liked as eloquently as everyone else already has but I digress I ve written about my own mental health struggles before and came across this book when I was searching for writing inspiration Unfortunately, nothing about this book feels honest It s supposed to be funny, but I didn t laugh once And depression IS often very funny I have to laugh at some of my own absurd depressive habits I ve developed over the years The writing style is far too stream of consciousness and the author can t seem to focus on one idea for a whole chapter Further, much of the humour is so dark and inappropriate that I can t help but feel like it s dangerous for someone with depression to read, even if it is meant to be a parody of self help books The whole thing just comes across as very contrived Jenny Lawson s Furiously Happy and Allie Brosh s Hyperbole and a Half are much better examples of what I feel this book is trying to achieve Try those instead if you re looking for stories about depression with a humorous approach. I suffer from anxiety and depression, among other things and I love to read books that have a humorous take on these subjects I thought the author did an amazing job putting a humorous spin on depression The stories included were definitely an added bonus Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others who suffer from depression I received a copy from BloggingForBooks.com in exchange for an honest review A different way to approach depression that s entertaining and oddly realistic Yes, Novak says, it s okay to spend days in bed feeling like a piece of garbage It s okay to doubt if your medication works at all You ll inevitably feel like shunning all forms of human interaction and that s normal But each little step you take to feel better is monumental too I loved the way Novak approached this book as a kind of satire on self help books and, dare I say it, it made me feel a little better But, thanks to Novak s disclaimer, I do not hold her liable for that fact. This was a fun, quick read on a topic that isn t usually described as fun or quick Novak s satire self help with elements of memoir falls somewhere between Hyperbole and a Half and the comedy of Mike Birbiglia Her smart, wry sense of humor about her own shortcomings and her empathy with fellow depressos makes this book succeed it s written by and for someone with depression, and never condescends to the reader And while it is, on the surface, a satire of a self help book, it comes with its own lessons and revelations, explained through Novak s own missteps and self deprecating jokes.I thoroughly enjoyed this and hope it finds its niche the market exists for this book If you like Hyperbole and a Half and who doesn t , pick this up when it comes out. I liked Novak s concept for this book of making a parody of self help books She creates a humorous book about how to best embrace your depression and the thralls of your listless sadness However, she keeps playing for laughs and is so impersonal that this book gets old fast I would rather hear about Novak s actual life than lots of sarcastic superficial humor I reviewed this book for BUST and gave it three boobs.
