How to be depressed properly

esotaria was reading her psych textbook here when she felt the need to comment on one of the examples in the book.

========
Anyway, just wanted to share this inanity from my psych textbook. This person seriously fails at being depressed.

Patient: I'm feeling even more depressed. No one wants to hire me, and I can't even clean up my aparment. I feel completely incompetant.
Therapist: I see. The fact that you are unemployed and have a messy aparment proves that you are completely incompetant?
Patient: Well...I can see that doesn't add up.


Wuss! Be strong in your self-hate! If it were me, I would have said: "Yes! If I'm not worth hiring, and I can't even do such a basic thing as keep an apartment clean, how could I possibly be considered competant?" Make the therapist WORK for his $100 an hour, damn it! ^_~
