"In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.As Jenny says: "Some people might think that being 'furiously happy' is just an excuse to be stupid and irresponsible and invite a herd of kangaroos over to your house without telling your husband first because you suspect he would say no since he's never particularly liked kangaroos. And that would be ridiculous because no one would invite a herd of kangaroos into their house. Two is the limit. I speak from personal experience. My husband says that none is the new limit. I say he should have been clearer about that before I rented all those kangaroos. "Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-up but you'd never guess because we've learned to bare it so honestly that it becomes the new normal. Like John Hughes wrote in The Breakfast Club, 'We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.' Except go back and cross out the word 'hiding.'"Furiously Happy is about "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life". It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy."Lawson is beloved around the world for her inimitable humor and honesty, and in Furiously Happy, she is at her snort-inducing funniest. This is a book about embracing everything that makes us who we are - the beautiful and the flawed - and then using it to find joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. Because as Jenny's mom says, "Maybe 'crazy' isn't so bad after all." Sometimes crazy is just right"--… (més)

I listened to this audiobook and I appreciated that it was read by the author. Jenny describes her life with struggles of severe depression among other challenges & unique life experiences. This books reads as a stream of consciousness, which for me sometimes worked and sometimes didn't. I feel that this book had it's moments, but was overall just okay. I greatly appreciate that the author shares her intimate daily struggles, shows others they are not alone, and is bringing awareness to mental illnesses. ( )

I don't give up on books very often, but unfortunately, this is one case where I just feel like I need to move onto something else, so I won't rate this one. I appreciate the fact that Jenny Lawson is trying to document her battle with anxiety, depression, and various other illnesses and mental illnesses with a dose of humor. But this somehow missed the mark for me. While many reviewers claimed to laugh out loud when reading, I found the humor a little too ridiculous and felt like Lawson was just trying too hard to be funny. She was all over the place with this book, and granted, I think that was somewhat intentional in order to prove a point with how her brain works, but it was a bit much for me. Maybe had I finished the book, I may have come to a better conclusion. But it wasn't clicking with me, so I'm cutting my losses and moving on.

I had to walk out of my bedroom because I was laugh-crying and shaking too much and afraid I'd wake up my son every night that I read this book. ( )

I have ADHD and Depressiosn like Jenny Lawson and I see myself in her book. The big difference is that I am only 5% snarky. The author is I have to hold my stomach while I roar loud. This book is a little more difficulat to follow but I love that she has come to many of the same conclusions that I did. If you feel really bad and want to stop your life, you have to remember that life will not stay the way that is now, it will definitely get better in the future. And you need to do things that make you happy, I read books, maybe too many but I always checked out enough books at the library when I was younger that I could bearly carry all of them. I have to have one 12 ounce diet coke every day or I will feel deprived.

Jenny Lawson writes notes to herself when she wakes up in the middle of the night. Wse both have terrible insomnia. At two a.m., she thought that they were brillant when she wrote them. But she finds out later that they were not. I gave up on writing down my wonderful thoughts because I cannot figure out what I wrote later.

I enjoyed her sleep study experience, I have had five of them and hated them so much that I never did aother one. I enjoyed her trip to Austraila and decided to never to go there but I might have a similiar experience.

The author gives all of us the knowledge that someone else besides us has ADHD and Depression and that is the healing property of this book. ( )

I had to stop several times to let the hysterical laughter subside. Crazy-funny, heartfelt, awesome book. :) ( )

This book is dedicated to my daughter, the giggling witness to the strange and wonderful world her family has created out of insanity (both real and hyperbolic).

God help us when she's old enough to write her own memoir.
