When feeling bad is good

Leaving Teeny Tiny Cabin tomorrow. So sad. I love it here

Anyway, I brought up a lot books to leave here. Came across an older book I bought at Goodwill a few months back. I want to recommend it, especially to the women, although men will find it helpful, too.

It’s When feeling bad is good. by Ellen McGrath. Ph.D. I like her distinction between what she calls a “healthy depression” versus an “unhealthy” one. I also like her viewpoint about when medication should or should not be prescribed to treat depression.

She is consistently rated as one of top psychologists in the country. As mental health has been my focus this past week, I wanted to share this resource with you.
