"I was a really social girl. I was the class clown. I had my best friends. We hung out every day. And suddenly, it was like... my perspective on everything changed like three degrees, which changes everything. So I didn’t see any point in hanging out with friends. It felt like a burden to hang out with friends. I was so jealous watching them from afar just existing in life, you know. I was so envious of that because it was like they didn’t even care that we were all going to die or that we’re totally alone behind our eyes, all of us. None of that bothered anybody else." Sarah Silverman talks about her experience of depression and her new film "I Smile Back" with Charlie, tonight on PBS.


"The hard part is, being so long depressed; it's easy to forget who the real person is."
