"He wasn't asking for your sympathy."

We know that. Thanks Captain Obvious.

Agreed, country music would do it.

Or a rope. Perhaps an electrical cord?

@RachaelKJones
Mental illness is *illness.* It's not selfishness. We don't call people with the flu selfish for puking all over themselves. People who lose a lifelong battle with a severe chronic illness haven't committed a moral failing. They've just died of a horrible illness.

@RachaelKJones
Framing depression as a moral failing is one of the very reasons that people in depressive episodes don't reach out to loved ones. Just about every depressive I know has a depression script revolving around it being selfish to mention our episodes, much less talk about them.

@RachaelKJones
Also, here's the US national crisis text line, because mustering the strength to *call a stranger* during a depressive episode would be like asking me to unicycle up Mt Everest while reciting all the digits of pi:

Kenyatta Jones (former N.E. Patriots player).
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Yea, just saw that elsewhere.

RIP Harlan. No need to worry about the mistreatment of 'City On The Edge Of Forever' anymore.
