Most who know me know that I love me some TED Talks. My Netflix queue is FULL of them. I love them all, but this is the best one I have ever, ever seen. In fact, it’s pretty much the best thing I’ve ever seen, period.
Andrew Solomon speaks candidly about depression; his own experiences with it and others’ as well. It is so eloquent, truthful, poignant and has just the right amount of humor sprinkled in.
This is an absolutely must-see video for anyone who has ever suffered from depression, anyone who’s ever known anyone who suffered with it, or anyone who just wants to understand it better. You will come away with a much better understanding of what depression is, and why you aren’t completely doomed to fight it forever.
There’s not enough good I can say about this. Just watch it. I promise you will be very glad you did. Spread this around to everyone who needs to hear it!
