177. Models of Living with Depression

I belong to a group called Depression and Bipolar Advantage on LinkedIn. Some time back, I posed a question: “When you think of depression, what people to you are models of living with depression and being productive?”

Here is a list of some of the answers:

Abraham Lincoln
Ernest Hemingway
Harrison Ford
Winston Churchill
The governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton
Rodney Dangerfield
Charles Spurgeon

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
