A Big Bang rec: Splintering in Slow Motion, a J2 fic by cyndrarae with art by [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal ♥. Mind the warnings. The author linked to an article on high-functioning depression. An extract from the article:

Cantopher believes that it is the strongest people who suffer from depression. "Give a set of stresses to someone who is weak, cynical or lazy and he will quickly give up, so he will never get stressed enough to become ill," he writes. "A strong person, on the other hand, will react to these pressures by trying to overcome them." In other words, he keeps pushing himself to do more, to achieve more, to be that high-functioning individual, because nothing is worse than being a disappointment (whether to himself or to others).

It's time we stopped trying to make people with mental illness fit the mold. Or, perhaps, consider that the mold is a whole lot different than what we thought.
