  (page 0 of 346)
"A colleague recommended this to me, so far I think it's a way of telling people who don't want to admit they struggle with anxiety about CBT by a new way of describing negative thoughts - i.e. Our brain had a chimp in it which does black and white thinking and catastrophising etc. The colleague is male and I don't wanna stereotype but I'm not surprised they enjoyed this ATM."

I read this very quickly! I love the colour palette used and the artwork was really nice. Very evocative of the turn of the season from Summer to Autumn which feels appropriate at the moment. I found the storyline interesting but not sure about the n ...more
Quack This Way by David Foster Wallace
“If you spend enough time reading or writing, you find a voice, but you also find certain tastes. You find certain writers who when they write, it makes your own brain voice like a tuning fork, and you just resonate with them. And when that happens, reading those writers—not all of whom are modern . . . I mean, if you are willing to make allowances for the way English has changed, you can go way, way back with this— becomes a source of unbelievable joy. It’s like eating candy for the soul. So probably the smart thing to say is that lucky people develop a relationship with a certain kind of art that becomes spiritual, almost religious, and doesn’t mean, you know, church stuff, but it means you’re just never the same.”
David Foster Wallace

I want to give this book five stars because it really was great, but it perpetuated the idea that medication alters you/you aren't yourself on it. Medication can save lives and the stigma around needing it is not helpful.
