Wouldn't want you to think I had *no* sense of humour--I used to find aspects of the show funny (I love Kelley's style!), and I tend to like black comedies. I think I'm just very aware right now of the general public (and insurance industry!) doesn't seem to think of depression as a proper illness, or they think you must be at the Ally McBeal level of hallucinatory dysfunction if you say you're suffering from it, ESPECIALLY if you have to take medication. I also see so many posts on message boards similar to this one from people who feel even more divorced from the world because the people around them have such a skewed view of the illness, so I get frustrated when I see that concept perpetuated on such a popular show. Believe me, I'm not necessarily saying that they should be making any kind of grand statement on the subject, either...
Like I said, though, I might just be over-reacting a bit because of things I'm dealing with right now.
