If you are in the public spotlight and need help with a medical condition like depression, it takes a lot of courage to seek the right help. After all, a lot of jackasses on public forums will bray and belch their scorn and ignorance towards you. Or claim that it is drugs or alcohol. Or state that depression is something that has been around forever.
I guess since cancer has been around forever it is the height of stupidity to get treatment for it. I guess since rich people can’t go through depression, they must all be drunks and coke-heads. I guess because so many people are so damn perfect that they get to mock those who go get help when they need it.
I learned a long time ago if you're looking for class around here, well.....keep looking.
Glad to see someone around here who has compassion.
I can't relate to that horrible illness but I commend her for being outright and honest about suffering from it. I saw part of an interview where she discussed it and one of the hard parts was "coming out" and admitting publicly she suffered from it. She knew she was going to get ridiculed by people who don't understand the condition and she has come to accept it.
Thanks...... obviously these FReepers that I see touting nasty comments towards Zeta-Jones do not know anyone who has battled Bipolar Disease.
Someone close to my heart battles bipolar and it isn’t a laughing matter.
The FReepers I see here are not regular names I recognize. Come on.......... FReepers.... you’re better than that. Go look up what this disease is before you lip off this way.
What you have written has given me depression, cancer, and addicted me to cocaine and alcohol.
