At a time when mental health problems are increasingly prevalent among 18-35-year-olds, Beth McColl offers up practical advice for anyone who has a mental illness or knows and loves someone else who does.
How to Come Alive Again is a funny, honest, broken audiobook written by an author who could be described as the same. It is a combination of self-help audiobook, memoir and polemical lifestyle guide. It lays out the basics for mending your life, accepting yourself, changing what doesn’t work, killing the worst of it and learning to live through depression.
It’s an audiobook about what to do when you’re an anxious, depressed, spaghetti-brained mess in a society that still prefers us to act normal and never talk about our mental health. It’s an audiobook about what happens when your life turns to s–t and you can’t get out of bed. It’s an audiobook for when you outwardly seem happy and functional but are actually drowning in worry.
