Quotable quotes: Depressing Shite

"Depression, when it’s clinical, is not a metaphor. It runs in families, and it’s known to respond to medication and to counseling. However truly you believe there’s a sickness to existence that can never be cured, if you’re depressed you will sooner or later surrender and say: I just don’t want to feel bad anymore. "
(Jonathan Franzen)

N.B: I know I've posted this somewhere before now but it wasn't on this blog so there you go.

Lindsay is now reading it for the first time ever so I'm quietly excited for her.

Meanwhile I just shouldn't drink um ever again apparently.
