After the death of a loved one, M. J. Rex loses focus, drive, and all hope that she will ever be the person she has always dreamed of becoming. Forced to make a life-altering decision about whether to move on with her own life or die in a figurative sense, she stumbles through life one soap opera at a time. Depressed People Make Me Sleepy follows M. J. through her childhood from about the age of fifteen into adulthood and the beginnings of her career as a forensic psychologist. Her struggle to be the best at what she does, however, places her face-to-face with unresolved matters that if left unresolved could destroy her and the life she has built for herself. Her story is plagued by both highs and lows that will make you laugh and cry aloud. Its colorful language also places the reader front row for every drama that unfolds chapter after chapter. And just when you, the reader, are beginning to share in M. J.'s loss and anger, you are uplifted by the sheer determination and joy created by her ability to triumph despite everything she goes through. M. J. highlights her truth about what it is like to be a psychologist who is stumbling through life, trying to find purpose while working as a treating clinician. While working with both sex offenders and mentally ill patients, she denies her own symptoms refusing to acknowledge she may be more like her patients than she cares to admit. The clash of everything personal and everything professional makes for an intensely thought-provoking read.

About the Author:

The assumption that I hear the most from patients about psychologists is that they have chosen the field of psychology because they too are looking for answers. Even so, for decades it has been taboo for psychologist to openly reveal and discuss the very struggles patients are often referring to. Patients tend to forget that psychologists are human too. The expectation is that, in a field nurtured by selflessness, the patient always comes first. This, at times, comes at the expense of the clinician. M. J. Rex speaks about her journey toward a career as a forensic psychologist. Her unique perspective gives not only an inside look at how personal and professional life can become entwined but how this process of entanglement actually helps to mold her into a more experienced and relatable clinician. Depressed People Make Me Sleepy also touches on the almost unspoken reality that there are mentally ill clinicians providing above-average treatment. M. J. very openly talks about her grief and loss, depression, overwhelming anxiety, family discord, her relationship with food, anger, abuse, and her role as a female throughout her life and career. More importantly, however, she manages to explain, sometimes in extremely vivid detail, how these tragedies became the foundation and basis for her success and personal growth.
