I should also add that I do plan on using some of the strategies from this book, so I suppose that recommends it somewhat. Getting it done is difficult. Certainly, there are plenty of lawyers that are unhappy at their jobs and struggling with depression. Set aside several times throughout the day to respond to these messages.
Clipping my toenails was so, so difficult for me during one of my recent low points. You must be productive at work, you must effectively complete your tasks without asking too many questions.
Some of these "methods" will push a depressed person over the edge. Keep working until you do feel even a small sense of accomplishment, and hold on to that as you finish a project. I encourage anyone struggling with depression to read this book, and use the tools it provides.
Yes, energy is definitely an issue Bipolar and Fatigue -- I'm So Tired but this brain space thing definitely has impactful limitations. I did a lot of reading and research before coming to Julie's book and still think it's the best thing I've read on bipolar disorder.

People have no idea why my brain would get full on a daily basis, but at least the notion of it is somewhat familiar for many. For some people this "get yourself moving" idea is probably complementary to their ways of coping. Most people can remember the famous line from the Disney movie, Snow White: Depression and anxiety 'wittles' life away.
