Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 16 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

Laughing along with Car Talk

Living with depression requires an enormous amount of patience, resilience, and coping. One of the my favorite coping skills is humor. When I lose my sense of humor or my sarcasm I know I am in a very deep hole. It's not pretty. One of my favorite sources for humor, especially on weekends, is National Public Radio. Living in Minnesota, I am quite fortunate to have a thriving public radio network, and I spend most of my weekend alone time listening to my local MPR station.
Today I heard one of the funniest segments I have ever heard on one of my favorite NPR programs, Car Talk. If you are in need of a really good laugh, spend the next 10 minutes listening to this! You won't regret it for a second! Enjoy!
