Adding Insult to Injury?

While out shopping the local bookstore this weekend, in search of any new "potty book" I could find, I was perusing the sale tables in the middle of the store. The ones with the clearance books, new releases, fun summer reads, etc, when I came across something that just struck me as odd, "Depression for Dummies". Now, I'm sure you are all familiar with the whole series they have for "Dummies", Spanish, nutrition, weightlifting, management, practically everything.

I must say that this one I thought was funny. I mean, it's one thing to be depressed, but to think you are a "dummy" too, isn't that counterproductive in the healing process? The other one that caught my attention was, "Bi-Polar for Dummies". Again, probably not very helpful for your moods, to have to walk into the Books A Million and admit that you are Bi-Polar and a Dummy.

Just an observation.

I think that if I feared I was bipolar or was feeling depressed, the sight of those books would make it worse.
