Furiously Happy

10 Apr

“Furiously Happy” is the second book by Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess dealing with her life coping with mental illness.

I have to say, first off, I really admire Jenny.  She has balls, honesty, frankness, and one of the most twisted senses of humour on the planet.

For a book about someone dealing with mental illness, I was reduced to tears of hysterical laughter far too many times.  So many times that it felt almost wrong to be laughing.

The sections on her trip to Australia, and the voodoo vagina, both left me breathless with laughter.

I cannot recommend “Furiously Happy” highly enough.  It is both entertaining and thought provoking.  If you, or someone in your life, is dealing with mental illness, I suggest you read this.  It will help.  If only to give you a sense of perspective.
