On the subject of mental health, there's this article about +Allie Brosh
, someone I'm sure most of you are familiar with.
Her posts on depression have been very spot on, and while no two people suffer anything quite the same way, it's been fantastic finally having a clear, simple depiction of the basics of the internal darkness to reference non-sufferers to.
From the article:Speaking ahead of an American book tour from Bend, Oregon, where she lives with her husband and their two dogs and seven pet rats, Brosh said her connection to legions of other depression sufferers has turned out to be a mutually beneficial feedback loop. “Depression is such an isolating experience, and there’s a tendency to feel like you’re the only one experiencing that depth or that exact brand of misery. And so it was surprising to hear how much it resonated with people,” she said. Just as importantly, people who’ve never experienced the condition write to her and say, “Oh wow, I understand it now.”
Allie, you're so very appreciated. ♥#Depression#MentalHealth
