Furiously Happy: A Funny Book about Horrible Things

Jenny Lawson admits it: she’s mentally ill and has rheumatoid arthritis. She knows how mental and physical pain claws at the psyche. Lucky for her—and for us—she has decided to be furiously happy whenever her ailments allow and share how she copes when flare-ups inevitably happen. Lawson writes about all sorts of crazy things; some that she experienced, others that seem to come out of nowhere. And she describes her lows uniquely. Lawson’s language is often saltier than I prefer, but she definitely is funny and insightful. Ultimately, hers is a message of hope and encouragement.

I read the audiobook; we also have the print version.
