I don’t think of myself as a depressed person anymore. I mean, there’s being “clinically depressed,” and then there’s feeling like crap. The two states of being can coexist, sure, but I feel like for me, at least nowadays, “clinically depressed” is just a title, the way “stutterer” is. I feel like a fluent, content person most of the time. In my heart of hearts, I don’t think of myself as a depressed person who stutters, even though I guess I am. I’ve come a long way from where I started, and I think I deserve some credit for that. There’s just a lot of good in the world, and wise people choose to see it.
