Having struggled to explain how I feel to friends and family - especially to those who say that they don't know how to help - I will be buying more copies and distributing them.
Foolishly, I thought how I am / feel is unique to me. The Author has made me feel far less isolated: this in itself has helped me through a dark time. Without doubt it won't last, but I found the book has given me some hope for my future. And more of an understanding as to the storm clouds of life.
Frankly, just buy it. It's well written and on that basis that other peoples' suffering makes us feel better, perhaps it'll cheer you up!
Matt, in the unlikely event you are reading this, thank you. Your reminiscences really did break me out of a spiral.
That said, this book helped me and I also found it a compelling read and an intriguing glimpse into the life of a depressive. It's also very well written (I'm now interested in reading more by Matt Haig)
I do feel it will be helpful to people suffering depression. I always think the best people to seek help from are those who have climbed from the darkest grips of something and found a way to overcome it, or at least manage it. That has more credibility than doctors and experts. I really hope this book can help people.
