Whether you're starting something new, looking for a new place to start, or just need to stop and sort some shit out, if you want help to do it yourself, let the Lone Wolf be your guide.
Based on the lived experiences of a trans person who is struggling with life, dealing with death, and learning all about their never befor acknowledged mental health issues, this book is the embodiment of the idea that you are not alone, that you are not powerless, and that you are, in fact, probably doing okay.
Compiled from photocopied pages of the author’s own journal and journey and complete with insights, illustrations, examples, exercises, plus plenty of space and encouragement to try it yourself. This DIY self-help book is about breaking free from expectations, figuring out what you want for yourself, and then making it happen. It is designed to be a multipurpose tool you can make work for you.

Lone Wolf's Self-Help Guide [CrewMember]
Dani had no idea what it was he was always working on. He only really knew that he felt perpetually frustrated, exhausted, anxious, isolated, and generally, like a turd burger with a fresh side of failure.
He followed so many different sets of directions and got lost in so many different ways. Until finally he just decided to do it all differently, and to do it all himself. He spent one full year and filled one entire notebook searching, researching, exploring, engaging, writing, and working – not on changing himself, but on changing the way he thought about himself, and what exactly it was he was working towards. The result didn’t magically fix everything overnight, but it did lead Dani to do things in his life he never imagined possible.
(It also led to this book, which was created at the request of his friends who wanted their own version to work through too.)
Compiled from photocopied pages of the author's own journal and complete with insights, illustrations, examples, exercises, and room for you to jump in and give it a go, this book is an interactive trip.
What are you waiting for? Do it yourself.
