When I got this book though, I barely got out of bed and had to stop working. I used avoidance in all areas of my life. I was majorly depressed and got on medications but, even more, I needed moment to moment help fast and this book spoke to me.
My main takeaway from this workbook is to take positive action and THEN the good feelings, good thoughts or mood elevation will follow. Another is to try new things, new activities, new hobbies, new tactics, and see how they make me feel.
No book is going to cure depression; you do have to do the work to change. I use therapy, meds, cbt/dbt, ACT, php, IOP, hospitalizations...and this workbook.
Best of luck!
