The real me: Emily Landau on antidepressants and identity
How do you know you're the "real" you? Are your feelings truly yours? As someone who has been on antidepressants since age 11, Emily Landau has faced these questions -- both from others and herself -- for years.
The journalist recently reflected on notions of self, authenticity and identity in a revealing essay for The Walrus. Today she joins guest host Talia Schlanger to discuss her parent's difficult decision, how the treatment has become a part of who she is, and why she chose to openly discuss her existential baggage.
