When Michelle Thomas suffered her first major depressive episode six years ago, she read and watched and listened to everything about mental health she could get her hands on in an effort to fix herself. God, it was depressing.
Which is the last thing she needed. What she did need was a therapist who would listen and a strategy catered to her needs. What she got was advice to watch a few YouTube videos and have a cup of tea when having a panic attack, along with a cheerful reminder that ‘it could be worse’.
My Sh*t Therapist is an honest, hilarious and heart-rending account of living with mental illness, helping you navigate the world, care for your mind and get through sh*t jobs, medications, relationships, habits, homes and therapists. You’ll find no scented candles or matcha tea ‘cures’ for mental illness here. Instead, learn how a modern woman and her friends and followers navigate life with their brilliant but unpredictably sh*t brains.
