Writing Instead

Wikipedia--dare I start anything with a reference book reference?--notes that "[Amy] Tan believed that her grandmother, her mother and herself all suffered from depression. Tan currently takes Zoloft to treat her bouts of serious depression [1]. In 1985, after her psychiatrist fell asleep for the third time during one of their sessions, Tan quit therapy and took up fiction writing instead."

There's a lot of courage and good sense, if it works for the individual--"writing instead."
