This is why The Bloggess is awesome on legs

To summarize: she's not just funnier than any one person has a right to be, she can also be painfully honest, is the world's foremost expert on water squirrels, and she tries to use her super powers for good (or to secure the successful rescue and delivery of James Garfield to his forever home).  Please read and share:

If you are too lazy to read that post, let me spell it out for you in Jenny-speak...Depression is a lying bastard.  If you suffer from it, don't listen to it, don't let it stop you from getting the help you deserve (and believe me, you do deserve it).  If you know someone who suffers from it, talk to them, do whatever it takes to get them the help they need.

We all know that the holidays are the hardest, you don't have to suffer from depression or anxiety to know that.  If you honestly can't understand how someone could be depressed during the holidays, please read this piece.  Look out for those who might be struggling and who are too afraid or too deep in it to reach out.  Here is a link to a data base of worldwide suicide hotlines.

Use your super powers for good.
