    PS. I really liked this comment at Twisty’s:

    I think we need to update “How are you doing?” Wouldn’t it be more honest if we had a social nicety that asked:

    “Do you need to vent to me about the sucky thing you’re going through?”

    Then we could say “yes” or “no” and be honest.

    There’s been times I could have done with that regarding the post-natal depression.
