Shake the blues away.

Everyone knows that depression can lead to guilt, sadness, frustration, and in the case of 15-20% of people with depression, suicide. Because we live in a culture that rewards (and often worships) productivity, when a depressed person can't meet the expectations of society, the depression becomes worse and a vicious cycle begins.

Overview

Shake the blues away.

Everyone knows that depression can lead to guilt, sadness, frustration, and in the case of 15-20% of people with depression, suicide. Because we live in a culture that rewards (and often worships) productivity, when a depressed person can't meet the expectations of society, the depression becomes worse and a vicious cycle begins. The goal of Getting Things Done When You're Depressed is to break this cycle. Readers will learn:
• How to prepare yourself mentally for working while depressed
• How to structure your environment so you can work more easily
• How to work with others
• How to prevent depression

for me the most beneficial chapter was about isolatiion. I am in my 40's now but have struggled with depression since childhood with lengthy periods of self/induced isolation. and withdrawal. my career is ruined because of excessive absences,, but i am. going to force myself to change. My meds alone cant do it for me.

I like this book because it takes the problems of depression and gives ideas and suggestions for over coming them. I especially like the two author format, one gives you a lay persons view and suggestions while the psychiatrist gives you a more in-depth technical view. At the very least, it confirms your behavior while depressed. Seems like its pretty much the same across the board for most people...welcome to our club. The messages are push yourself when you can and how to go about that, and then the information about why we have problems with that. I found it worth while. True to the title.
