I'm usually a tough customer, but I wish I could buy everyone who's ever meant anything to me a copy of this book! If you have any doubts, just buy the book. It's only $10, but may be the best 10 bucks you've ever spent! A great companion book is Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Revised and Updated, to help you further identify negative thought patterns. My (unclinical and unauthorized) "prescription" for better mental health is: read The Happiness Makeover, get enough sleep, ditch old religious views or anyone/thing that suffocates or drags you down, and do something every day that brings you joy. I hope someone can benefit from these suggestions as much as I have. Don't give up. You really CAN get rid of the seeds of depression and unhappiness. I never thought it would happen but it did! Whether this is your book or you choose another path, my best wishes go to you in trying to achieve your happiest life. : )
And if you really can't handle things anymore, there is still help, and there is still someone there for you. Just call the HopeLine for free at 1(800)SUICIDE. There is so much happiness that awaits you if you just take the first positive steps to get whatever help you may need, whether it's a book, bravely asking for help from a friend or the HopeLine, contacting a counselor, or something else. Help and hope are there for you.
