Ms. Wiest,

I have shared several copies of Johann Hari’s book, Lost Connections, which you effectively cite in this piece. My friends on medication for depression say that Hari has written the book about their (often-early) lives which included trauma of one form or another. Your essay is a valuable reminder that we are, indeed, social animals. Your methods and pronouncements to ‘keep it real’ throughout are spot on. Thank you.
