Our brains are doing their best to help us out, but they can be real assholes sometimes. Sometimes it seems like your own brain is out to get you—melting down in the middle of the grocery store, picking fights with your date, getting you addicted to something, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. You already told your brain firmly that it isn’t good to do these things. But your brain has a mind of its own, especially if it’s focusing on and obsessing about trauma it can’t overcome. That’s where this book comes in. With humor, patience, and lots of good-ole swearing, Dr. Faith shows you the science behind what’s going on in your skull, and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life. If you’re working to deal with old traumas (particularly P.T.S.D), or if you just want to have a more measured and chill response to situations you face all the time, this book can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together, and get your life and brain back on the right track.
I give Unfuck Your Brain by Faith G. Harper four out of five hearts, which also counts for This is Your Brain on Anxiety. The author gives me the impression of knowing what she is talking about and actually gives information that is useful for people who suffer from mental health issues and is also a good read for people who deal with mental health issues.
In my eyes Unfuck Your Brain does it best to help sufferers from mental health issues by creating understanding and confidence.
I found it a bit sad that This is Your Brain on Anxiety wasn’t a separate book, because I liked Faith’s writing and would have liked to learn more about her thoughts on anxiety.
Overall these two books are well written and very informitive.
