Best. Description. of Depression. Ever.

I'm not particularly a fan of Hyperbole and a Half, but this comic is great (for its explanatory power). I've never been that depressed, but the gist is spot on.

[oh and warning: some language]


  1. Yeah, she's pretty accurate. I wonder how she would depict all of this going on inside your head while you are forced to knock on doors and proselytize to people all day.

  2. One of the things I love about Mormonism is that, for me at least, being "forced" by social pressure to come to church each week and perform a calling etc is that it kind of gets me out of those slumps faster. I think. That being said, the mission is exactly what everyone describes it as: the highest highs and the lowest lows all packed together. Depression can make those lower lows all the more abysmal.
