One of my very favorite bloggers is Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess (http://thebloggess.com). She is wickedly funny and is completely off-beat and original. She is also completely open about her struggles with depression and anxiety. When she isn’t making me laugh she is bringing me to tears. One minute she is bawdy and outrageous, and the next she is completely vulnerable and laying her soul bare.
Today she re-tweeted a link from one of her followers. The link was to a letter penned by the British actor Stephen Fry to a young woman with depression. His words were so genuine and comforting. It was one of the most moving things I have ever read. If you suffer from depression, please read it. If someone you love suffers, it will give you some of the best words of comfort you will ever be able to share. The link is http://www.lettersofnote.com/2009/10/it-will-be-sunny-one-day.html.
If you have never checked out The Bloggess, I encourage you to get yourself to her site right away. Some days her words will move you. Some days she will make you shriek with laughter. But she will never, ever bore you.
