My name is Lauren and I suffer from depression. Frequently. Burst-into-tears-at-the-slightest-provocation depression Hide-in-my-room-and-stop-talking-to-my-friends depression. Stop-updating-my-blog-for-months-on-end-because-oh-god-what's-the-point depression.
Allie Brosh, creator of the blog-punctuated-with-hilarious-MS-Paint-cartoons Hyperbole and a Half apparently shares my occasional serotonin deficiency. In her latest installment, she offers a window into her depressive episode, complete with the oh-so-helpful superego who walks around berating her for being depressed.
Brosh's story has a happy(ish) ending, one that makes me a little jealous. Man, I wish my depression would eventually eat itself.
