Marci, Mental Health, & More

People in the mental health community often mention how ignorant people are and how their comments about mental illness end up annoying or hurting them.  This has resulted in a lot of people offering lists of things not to say to someone with mental illness, and it usually focuses on depression.  While on the internet I found these witty comebacks to 5 common comments you should say to someone with depression. You can find the original blog at The Good Men Project:

1. “Depression isn’t real.”

Comeback: “It’s much more real than your imaginary medical expertise.”

2. “You have nothing to be depressed about! You’ve got a great life!”

Comeback: “That’s like saying to an asthmatic, ‘Of course you can breathe! There’s lots of air everywhere!’ ”

3. “But you don’t look like you have a mental illness.”

Comeback: “That’s because I’m disguised as a human being today.”
