Internet savvy people with depression from around the world are rejoicing (well as much as we are capable of rejoicing… we are experiencing some kind of thank God she isn’t dead sort of thing… we are feeling…something… mostly I think it is feeling understood. And isn’t that what everyone wants?) because the best blogger EVER is back. Allie Brosh writes Hyperbole and a Half. It’s a cartoon blog. It’s … it’s just everything.
Anyone who is depressed or knows someone who is, the best blogger in the universe is back after over a year of being unable to blog due to depression and I am so happy for her. This sounds like a terrible thing to go read, but it’s not. She’s a cartoonist. It’s brutally honest, but you will probably find plenty of things that make you laugh, yes, even you. I am just glad she is back because she explains depression so well. If you find your self explaining to people “It’s not like that…” but unable to explain what it is like… then… this is for you. If you find yourself wishing someone would just snap out of it and get back to their old fun self, this is for you. This is for everyone. Go see.
I’m going to go look for a kernel of corn.
