Hmm …

… ICU Stay Can Lead to Depression | Psych Congress.

I spent the greater part of a week in one last year, and I had what was described as a life-threatening condition, but I don’t remember feeling either alarmed or depressed, either while I was in the ICU or afterward. I was pleased that the problem was fixed, and the care I received was wonderful, and no great discomfort was involved. But then, I don’t tend to get bent out of shape over much. 


  1. 'Bent out of shape' is hardly the same as depression, as I'm sure you well know.

  2. Well, I have certainly witnessed what depression is like, but bent out of shape is about as near as I ever get to it myself.
