Tag Archives: Hyperbole and a Half

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.
