Anyone who's read my blog knows that during medical school I suffered from depression.
Yet at work, all the time I hear people dismissing depression and patients with it.
It's at times like this that I like to make people feel uncomfortable. I'm not afraid to point out that depression affects everyone, including doctors.
And yes, I will turn around and point out that since 2007 I have taken anti depressants. And to the people that point out that I don't appear depressed - well antidepressants seem to work for me.
So before you make sweeping statements about depression and mental health problems, remember that not all disabilities can be seen with the naked eye.
Depressed and happy
