I am the queen of DIY acid peels, so at the moment I am in that 'burn victim ' phase which for me is generally about a full week before things start looking better - this book made an already red, irritated and rather ugly face that much uglier. Why ? Too many tears. My eyes looked blood shot and an already red face was made even redder. I connected so deeply with this book, especially since I was hospitalized just over a month ago for suicidal ideation and I have spent a huge part of my life lamenting, regretting, hurting, being angry and all other sorts of painful emotions that are common for people, who like the title says ' If you feel too much '.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399176497, Hardcover)

In 2006 Jamie Tworkowski wrote a story called “To Write Love on Her Arms” about helping a friend through her struggle with drug addiction, depression, and self-injury. The piece was so hauntingly beautiful that it quickly went viral, giving birth to a non-profit organization of the same name. Nine years later, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is an internationally-recognized leader in suicide prevention and a source of hope, encouragement, and resources for people worldwide.

Jamie’s words have been shared hundreds of thousands of times online. They’ve shown up on T-shirts and posters and even tattoos. Now, for the first time, Jamie’s writing is available in the form of a book. If You Feel Too Much is a celebration of hope, wonder, and what it means to be human. From personal stories of struggling on days most people celebrate to offering words of strength and encouragement in moments of loss, the essays in this book invite readers to believe that it’s okay to admit to pain and it's okay to ask for help. If You Feel Too Much is an important book from one of this generation’s most important voices.
