Depression's Eleven Big Lies EXPOSED!


It’s helpful to know that depression lies to you, that it presents the world in a way that is false just to mess you up. It’s even more helpful to know exactly what whoppers it tries to pull off. We enlisted our team of world-class investigative reporters, aka our listeners, aka The THWoD-balls, to blow the lid off lies about love, hard work, ignorance, staying alive, and even cookies. We can’t stop you from lying, depression, but we can know a lie when we hear it. Also, hey, we have new stuff available for donors! Act now to get your very own THWoD pill-shaped stress ball. It’s pill-shaped but not pill-sized because that would be ridiculous.
