The Hilarious World of Depression
« on: November 24, 2017, 07:28:09 PM »
My therapist recently was at a conference where the host of the podcast "The Hilarious World of Depression" gave a presentation. The other day the topic of dark humour came up in our session, as it often does; and she gave me the link to his podcast:

https://www.apmpodcasts.org/thwod/

 I haven't had a chance to listen to many episodes yet, but those that I've scanned are interesting takes on how depression (and by extension cptsd) symptoms can be handled once one can get into a lighter re-framing state of mind about it. The onsite description:

"The Hilarious World of Depression is a series of frank, moving, and, yes, funny conversations with top comedians who have dealt with this disease, hosted by veteran humorist and public radio host John Moe. Join guests such as Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Jen Kirkman to learn how they’ve dealt with depression and managed to laugh along the way."

This also ties in with another recent thread posted here: http://outofthefog.net/C-PTSD/forum/index.php?topic=8065.msg55999#msg55999

Dark humor is one of my primary coping mechanisms! Thanks for the suggestion, woodsgnome. I'm looking forward to this one.
