    I sufferer from anxiety, ptsd and clinical depression and was wondering whether anyone had any good self help/wellbeing book recommendations, or any books that have helped/ had a positive impact on them especially of those regarding:

    - the authors first hand experience with one of the above illnesses (and their recovery)... it's comforting reading about someone else's experience & to feel you can relate to someone

    - DAILY coping/ distraction/ self help/ prevention mechanisms/ advice

    - any small tips or tricks to a better more productive happier day

    - changing negative thought patterns/ cycles and subconscious/conscious thought behaviours

    The books and style of writing can't be too difficult to read

    Thanks in advance

    Freud and Adler both have helped me through my illness. Freud is a bit heavy going but works and Adler is very positive in his outlook on life.

    I haven't read it yet (they gave me a 20 day window for delivery lmaooo), but I ordered "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff...and it's all small stuff" a while ago and I've heard great things about it. Apparently it's really concise and straight-to-the-point.

    Once I've had the chance to read through it, I'll be able to say more
