Mogu li se neke suhoparne, dosadne riječi poput 'idealizacije', 'traumatskog razočaranja', 'potiskivanja', 'poricanja', 'paranoje', 'empatije', 'optimalne frustracije', 'preobražujućeg pounutrenja', 'pravog sebstva' staviti u strip, sve na jednom mjestu, čak kronološki? Mogu, evo ih ovdje:
Here is my definitive theory of depression: It is caused by the depressing things that happen to us. Among a great many other things, it depresses me that depression itself has been turned by psychiatry and psychology into a disease process, something the medical community tells us is “treatable.” Depression will never be treatable, and the reason is that it is built into the human conditin itself. Human life has very depressing things within it, and to encounter these things is to be depressed by them. The idea that one can or should “treat” depression makes little sense. Sometimes I have the depressing thought that nonsense rules the world.
What about people who become so depressed they cannot function, they wish themselves dead, or they cannot even rise from their beds? Am I suggesting there is no treatment for them? I am not saying there is no help for a person in the grip of something that causes depression. There is help: namely, the support and understanding that person may be lucky enough to receive from others who care about whatever it is that has happened.
