Finished this one off last night before bed. I‘m thankful that my anxiety is not nearly at this level, but I know for many people, it is. Whether or not you suffer from any level of anxiety, I feel like this memoir is worth the read. ♥️

Total time for #24B4Monday, #MrBook1inaMillion us roughly 4 hrs 25m. I‘m not bothering with the ⏱as I know I won‘t be able to read much. Spending time with my husband before he goes back underground for 2 weeks.❤️

Andrew65 That time with your husband is more important and still a great time given this. 👏👏👏 3mo
Lynnsoprano Hubby is definitely priority. Mine deals with significant anxiety. This sounds like something I should read. 3mo
WorldsOkayestStepMom I deal with high anxiety and should probably read this book as well as others that my therapist has suggested. But fiction is more fun and a great escape for me! Lol enjoy the time with your husband! 3mo
MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo

Switching up the audiobooks again. 33 Men is just too emotional for me to fall asleep to. This is my bed time choice for tonight. I haven‘t had much chance to read for #24B4Monday so far... slightly over an hour before I crashed last night. Hoping to get in atleast 5-10 years this weekend, but honestly that‘ll even be a stretch. 🙈 Sad to be working for the next 6 weekends. #MrBook1inaMillion

Clwojick 🙄🙄🙄 Can you tell I‘m tired? 5-10 hours... not years. 3mo
BBooks Idk 5-10 years of sleep sounds good to me 💤💤💤💤💤💤💤 3mo
allureofbeauty How is this? Sounds interesting 3mo

Andrew65 @Clwojick Ohhh! I was impressed but believed you could get 5 - 10 years in. 😍 (edited) 3mo
Andrew65 Good luck you always impress me with all you do, enjoy your time away from the books. 3mo
Clwojick @allureofbeauty So far its pretty good. I‘m enjoying, but could understand that it wouldn‘t be for everyone. It‘s dry at points, but you expect that with any autobiography. 3mo

#LilithJuly The term #BasketCase was a slang word used in the 80‘s. It was often used to describe someone who was out of control with worry when a given situation had no solution. A bunch of years ago our bookclub read a memoir by a writer who suffered from crippling anxiety. It was poignant and funny, insightful and a really honest look at what it means to live with a social disorder. Very readable.

KarenUK Not familiar with this one at all.... but I am definitely going to share this recommendation with a friend who i know will appreciate this one... thanks for sharing 😍💕 7mo
Cinfhen I thought the author did a really good job conveying the intensity and absurdity @KarenUK and his writing was really engaging 7mo

I asked my cousin to recommend any books to me dealing with anxiety because I've been having a rough time with it lately and feel like I need something to read about it to take my mind off of what's giving me anxiety. She suggested this one and a few others. My gf ordered it for me today and I'm very anxious to start reading it. Has anyone else read this?

My current situation: When you read a few sentences in a book you just got and realize you have been in denial your whole adult life AND you, yourself, are a psychotherapist. Oh my! 😳

Suet624 Oh dear. This was quite the book. 3y
Joyfulmimi Yea. I have to get myself ready to read it @Suet624 3y

That day when ALL THE LIBRARY REQUESTS come in at once. This is the problem with the library using multiple apps for audiobooks! I forget to track what's on hold where! Gah!

Sweettartlaura Down the Rabbit Hole on audio is fun! I recommend you get to this one first🙂 3y

As someone who has anxiety, I really did enjoy how he describes it. And he maintains a sense of humor throughout the book. Would recommend!
