“No matter how many times the therapist explained high functioning depression, [my parents] never believed it. I mean, I can’t really blame them. I have trouble believing it myself sometimes. And I’m living it.“
I really appreciated Busted Laser’s very honest explanation of high functioning depression.
As Ellen says every day at the end of her show, “Be nice to one another.”

On another note, I spent yet another day watching Ally McBeal on Netflix.
Can I just say “THANK GOD FOR MARATHON TELEVISION” – ????? Can I just say that?
I spend a lot of time at home drawing (and drawing) (and drawing). During the week, while drawing, I listen to music, audio books and podcasts. But on the weekend, I like to get all wild and crazy and watch something fun. Something I can keep on in the background that makes me laugh without requiring much concentration.
My go-to shows for weekend marathoning are 90210, Melrose Place and Ally McBeal. I’m so glad that neither 90210 and Melrose Place went the way of anorexia that Ally McBeal did. It is definitely annoying and difficult to watch the starved women of Ally McBeal seasons 2, 3 and 4. But it is what it is and hopefully some girl somewhere learned something when the women of Ally McBeal eventually shared their stories of body dysmorphia and starvation. And hopefully they realized that the non-anorexic characters of Elaine (played by Jane Krakowski) and Renee (played by Lisa Nicole Carson) were the most beautiful women on the show.
Luckily for me, my broken brain allows me to watch the same episodes over and over again without remembering most of the show. It’s a gift, really.
And finally, a recommendation –
LOVE close up with the hollywood reporter on Sundance TV!
You must, must, must watch if you love observing the minds of creative people.
