Yeah, I probably had such a visceral reaction because of all the years spent convincing my partner that no matter how bad her depression got (at least a 58/63 on the Beck Depression Inventory, as found online), she still existed and had a personality, that even if the depression might make it impossible for her to see any of this, that I could still see her as a person. And then along comes this woman effectively telling her husband, "Well, nope, you don't exist as a person any more."

I don't have the same visceral reaction to people using this language of, say, advanced dementia, where the other person literally doesn't know their own name or yours any more. But depression? It raised my hackles.

Okay, I have a lot of feelings, but I'll stop here.

The Mold Warrior thing cracked me up. Death by "mold plume!" The other woman on the forum who valiantly attempted to switch terminology from "ick" to the more scientific-sounding "IC!"

Yeah, I feel for that woman. She tried so hard, lol.
