We feel we are a party to a sacred realm and find ourselves drawn to her testimony; mesmerized by her ability to keep thwarting herself from getting better. Buku nonfiksi ini berisi rekapan percakapan antara si penulis–yang menderita Distimia–dengan psikiaternya selama prosesnya untuk bisa lebih menyayangi dirinya sendiri. Though her work was far from the Broadway shows she dreamed about, it eventually became all about the nightly hustle to simply survive.It also provides key insights to issues that are widely applicable, definitely found myself bookmarking certain places! also: interesting to learn the term dysthymia, which describes "a state of constant, light depression.

Any "Author Information" displayed below reflects the author's biography at the time this particular book was published. As a result, profound subjects like the stigma of suicide are lost in the weeds of the monotonous stretches that surround references to them. Born in 1990, Baek Seheestudied creative writing in university before working for five years at a publishing house. The message the book sends is that it’s alright not to be perfect (or perhaps, for K-Drama fans, It’s OK to Not Be OK…), and Baek is often surprised by what the psychiatrist tells her. This review is a reflection of my reading experience and not of the events that occurred in this book.The poetry (more accurately described as italicized notes-to-self with line breaks) remains strewn liberally through the pages, often summarizing the takeaway or the emotional impact of the events described: "I was / and still am / an exceptionally / easy target. These sections consist of a back and forth between the two in which they look back at the week just gone, discussing the highs and lows of the past seven days.

I Want to Die but I Want to Eat Tteokpokki is a book originally written in Korean, about a woman diagnosed with dysthymia. He is the winner of a PEN Translates grant and a PEN/Heim Translation Fund grant, among many others, and his translations include Kyung-Sook Shin's Violets, Bora Chung's Cursed Bunny, and Sang Young Park's Love in the Big City.Baek Se-Hee’s words remind us that seeking help is a brave choice, a step toward understanding ourselves and finding healing. i won't be following the advice to a t, but i did think it was very interesting to see how different the culture is in Korea versus America and how the author's insecurities and societal pressures differ from--or are similar to-- mine.

I wonder about others like me, who seem totally fine on the outside but are rotting on the inside, where the rot is this vague state of being not-fine and not-devastated at the same time. For a book that supposedly lays it all out, it lacked depth in terms of allowing the reader to step into the author's experiences with her struggles with her mental health (examples of books I read recently that did this well: The Limits of My Language: Meditations on Depression by Eva Meijer, Hello I Want to Die Please Fix Me: Depression in the First Person by Anna Mehler Paperny). Many of the things that were said were relatable to me, so I really liked reading about the journey the author took with their mental health.At once personal and universal, this book is about finding a path to awareness, understanding, and wisdom. I was wondering why this book was so hyped until I did some Nancy Drewing and realized that someone from BTS apparently endorsed this book so I guess it's true what they say: The boy bands will inherit the earth.
