FINISHED my final prompt for #Booked2020: I‘m excited that I completed it! This was at my bottom of to be read list: recommended by a therapist over a year ago. The other ones were #Gothic or horror: “Mexican Gothic,” #ThinkPink: “ We Have always Been Here,” #Publishedin2020: “Resilience is Futile,” #Bookclubworthy: “Ragged Company,” #SouthAsian “Ghachar Ghochar.”

Singout The book itself is considered to be a classic in its field: at least in Canada, where it was written. I‘ve been told it‘s a bit outdated now. It was hard slogging because it‘s about all the links between physical illness and mental health issues (stress, childhood unhappiness, anxiety, depression) which could be demoralizing because I‘m living with a long-term physical illness. However, I took some notes I‘m going to follow up on. 2y
Cinfhen Woohoo 🎉 🙌🏻
congrats on completing #Fall #Booked2020 💗This is your #OfficialFinalEntry 🎊WELL DONE
And glad the tagged book offered you some helpful ideas 🤗Happy New Year
Singout Happy New Year to you too! 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I have another Maté on my shelf, but this one actually sounds more interesting. Have you read 2y
Singout My friend who said this was outdated recommended that one, and I might read it at some point but I‘m not very diligent about monitoring and consuming-health related things. One of the qualities he addresses in the book: avoidance. 2y
