Humor is a healer, and as serious as illness is, we need a break from it sometimes.  Karen, you're so right about getting it out in the open.  One wonders how many limp through life due to a refusal to admit there's a problem.  No one seems ashamed to have ulcers, heart disease, cancer, etc., yet hold a shameful feeling about mental illness.

Once some wise person said, "Normal!  What is 'normal'?  The only thing 'normal' is a dryer setting."

  Hugs and Blessings,

     Rae

Chris Rose column - Times Picaynne
If I may - because he is simply so "real" in an unreal world.  I loved his last line ( won't give it away - you have to read it.)
