marriage and mental status

5 Apr

So, I’ve gone on before about how great John is for putting up with me all these years…don’t get me wrong, he really is, as I can be quite a pill.  But Brain & Behavior is helping me more fully appreciate what I bring to our marriage.  As a woman, I am apparently a protective factor for John against depression.  Unless they’re members of Pennsylvania’s Old Order Amish community, men don’t contribute squat in that regard.

Giving credit where credit is due, John may very well have protected me against bipolar disorder, but only because I snatched him up before the ripe old age of 19.
