12 Steps Toward Freedom from Depression

Laugh

Happy baby

From my 12 years of therapy I have learned at least one thing: I use sarcasm as a defense mechanism. But I'm keeping the jokes and the acerbic tone because Abe Lincoln and Art Buchwald, two of my mental health heroes, said wit was essential to sanity, that comedy can keep a person out of the psych ward (not really). And if you're laughing, you're not crying... even though the two look similar from 10 feet away.
