Great and extremely raw writing from Rob Delaney. Rob is a comedian and his sense of humor really does it for me.
Fortunately, a tiny part of me recognized my thought process as “crazy.” I knew that if anyone other than me was describing these symptoms I would lovingly handcuff them and take them to the hospital and help the shit out of them, whether they liked it or not. So I tried very hard to step out of myself and look at the situation with a modicum of objectivity and “imagine” that I was someone who deserved help.
Rob is one of my favorite streams on Twitter but I love when he steps out of that persona and writes something meaningful. I wish it was easier to find those substantial articles in his Tumblr. They are gems among the hilarity of poop and modern culture references.
