Artists & Scientists

Guest Post: “MAKE THE DEMON PRETTY: My experience with Depression”

For this week’s guest post on Artists & Scientists, I’m pleased to introduce Ms. Shilpi Bharadwaj, my friend and colleague.

Shilpi is a fellow student of cognitive science, an avid reader, and a talented photographer and visual artist. Shilpi is equally serious about work and fun. She is interested in everything, sees the best in everyone, and lights up any room she walks into. Shilpi has taught me to be kinder to other people. I’ve helped her to accept herself as she accepts other people. 

For the last few years, Shilpi has been battling with several health issues, including major depression. Her valour in the face of adversity humbles and inspires me.

Today, Shilpi writes about her experience of depression — as a cognitive scientist living with this extremely common, underdiagnosed, and potentially devastating disorder.
