On Depression -- Lesley Hazelton



http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/169548.html

When depression is stigmatized as illness and weakness, a double bind is created: If we admit to depression, we will be stigmatized by others; if we feel it but do not admit it, we stigmatize ourselves, internalizing the social judgment …. The only remaining choice may be truly sick behavior: to experience no emotion at all.
