A woman in New Zealand has sold her illness on Trade Me for $155. Atta girl. The 29 year old who suffers from depression wrote on the listing “My depression won’t let you down. It will rear its ugly head at regular intervals. You can call it the Black Dog if you like. At its severest, you won’t be able to get out of bed to shower, change your underwear or clean your teeth.” She was also kind enough to estimate the monthly cost of keeping her illness “under wraps”, which was about $500 (if you don’t include time off work). Despite the winning bidder recieving a transfer of ownership form for the depression there were no guarantees it would hang around.
Psst The money was donated to the Movember Foundation.
