“Whitney Cummings has written a book about being, well, not fine—and what to do when you find yourself with brutal anxiety and a co-dependency disorder; all in her trademark wit, humor, and honesty. This book, however, is fine as hell.”—Sophia Amoruso, author of #Girlboss
“The funniest cry for help you'll read this year.”—BJ Novak
Well, well, well. Look at you, ogling my book page....I presume if you’re reading this it means you either need more encouragement to buy it or we used to date and you’re trying to figure out if you should sue me or not.
Here are all the stories and mistakes I’ve made that were way too embarrassing to tell on stage in front of an actual audience; but thanks to not-so-modern technology, you can read about them here so I don’t have to risk having your judgmental eye contact crush my self-esteem. This book contains some delicious schadenfreude in which I recall such humiliating debacles as breaking my shoulder while trying to impress a guy, coming very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison, and having my lacerated ear sewn back on by a deaf guy after losing it in a torrid love affair. In addition to hoarding mortifying situations that’ll make you feel way better about your choices, I’ve also accumulated a lot of knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths, which can probably help you avoid making the same mistakes I’ve made. Think of this book as everything you’d want from the Internet all in one place, except without the constant distractions of ads, online shopping, and porn.
I’m not sure what else to say to say, except that you should buy it if you want to laugh and learn how to stop being crazy. And if we used to date, see you in court.

I’m Fine...and Other Lies
An honest and open description of the journey to better mental health. Written with her wonderful sense of humor, which keeps you wanting to read more. A perfect champion of the imperfect human condition. Thank you, Whitney!
A brilliant book by a brilliant person brilliantly written
Bearing your soul is therapeutic not just for the bearer but for all those who get the chance to experience the bearer’s bearing. I love the book, I looked forward to it every evening. I was sorry when it was over, but ill get over it. We are all flawed in some way or another or Maybe it’s the systems we live under that are flawed and we’re just victims. either way I’m fine and other lies by Whitney Cummings is bound to release many of us from our self inflicted bondage. Thanks for sharing Whitney.
I’m so overwhelmed
I have so much anxiety right now, as I was laying bedridden from anxiety and the fun side effects and thoughts. I caught this on a random show I have no idea of the name of the show, was the only thing that wasn’t an infomercial as I only get 3 channels and 6 when they find more commercials to torment me with.
So I looked it up, as I am desperate right now coming back from a wasted trip to the hospital last night because apparently I’m “Bad, but could be worse. At least sometimes you’re able to get out of bed and take a shower or do some dishes...”
After reading the 66 page sample, and being in financial turmoil due to my mental disposition. I can’t afford to purchase the full book right now.
So with this being said my review is over the momentary relief I felt in just the SAMPLE. A relief I haven’t not felt since I got lost. I have not been able to read as I get too anxious to get to the parts that I need to know to feel good and I never find it and give up trying to read. I was so satisfied with everything I was reading I kind of forgot it was a sample and I’m really sad that it’s over. But hopefully soon I can purchase the full book and continue my novel review, because I really feel like what I was reading was the most helpful entertainment I’ve had since before I can remember.
