It's Ok Not To Be Ok

The ever wonderful Keelium pointed out this post by Miri on facebook, saying 
"Seriously good shit. Read immediately. As someone who has spent the same decade (14 to 24 for me though) learning from depression, I'm with Miri 100%."
Miri talks about making life decisions - including not doing a PhD - based in part on how it will affect her depression.  She makes the excellent point that if somebody has bad knees, nobody criticises them for not running a marathon.  The same should apply if your mental health precludes certain areas of activity.
