Don't feed The Beast. In this no-nonsense guide for men, psychologist Jonas Horwitz presents straightforward, jargon-free strategies to help you identify and overcome depression, once and for all. The damned thing about severe depression is that it takes over your brain, body, and spirit. It wants you to say to yourself, There is nothing I can do to make myself feel better. I am helpless in the face of my problems. Even at this very moment as you read these words, your severe depression is whispering in your ear, This is all bulls@#t. Your depression has lived with you for a long time, and has seldom left your side. It's relentlessly pessimistic, and wants you to believe that your misery will never end. In a nutshell-your severe depression is The Beast that you just can't seem to escape. With this unique guide, you'll learn why it's so important to take your severe depression seriously-just as you would if you had cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or any other life-threatening illness. In addition, by anthropomorphizing your depression into a separate entity-The Beast-you'll discover what makes it tick, as well as the unhealthy behaviors that can feed it and make it stronger, such as drinking or watching too much television. Most importantly, you'll find actionable solutions to put The Beast in its place so you can start focusing on the things that matter. In order to overcome your depression, you must understand its nature. This book will help you understand The Beast, stop feeding it, and take back your life.
