“We are so, so, so accepting of any body part breaking down — other than our brains.”
My friend’s blog post (Kevin Breel: Confessions of a Depressed Comic) brought this video to my attention. I love it first because Kevin eloquently explains depression. For those who have not experienced it or intimately accompanied a loved one through it, depression is often misunderstood. What I love in addition to this is how forcefully Kevin connects this misunderstanding to our societal stigmas. To the marginalization of those who suffer from depression. To the prejudice we attach to mental health issues but not to physical health issues.
