Spot On

Allie is amazing.  I’m sure most of you know Hyperbole and a Half.  She has a new post today for the first time in awhile.

She was on a long sabbatical due to depression and her entry today is just….glorious.  I know she normally is a part of the comics/humor circle in the blogsphere (and is technically not WP, but I don’t much care about that).

But today I welcome her to the mental-health circle.  With great pleasure.

Thank you Allie, for having the courage to write so honestly and unabashedly about long-term/clinical depression.  I know the subject has been touched on before, but today’s entry was the naked look at something that is normally a stigma, especially from a humor standpoint.

Hopefully some people will learn to stop asking the wrong questions about the dead fish.

    i just read it! i’m SO RELIEVED to see her posting again (i admit, i had gotten very worried that she had disappeared for so long, anyone with a history of depression who disappears off the face of the earth worries me). it’s a glorious post. it’s so relate-able. 🙂 i’m glad you saw it, i’m glad she’s (going to be) alright, i’m just generally GRATEFUL for this series of events. ❤

      Me too. I was so happy to see her return 🙂 I had to share it with the world!

      I think the last time she posted was even before I started my lil’ ol’ blog. Haha.
