    Stephen fry is BIPOLAR! which is twice as bad as depression. He has even made a documentary about it. Get. Your. Facts. Right.

    And too many self diagnose depression when just sad. sometimes people need to suck it up.

      What really sucks is that bipolar disorder can be wrongfully diagnosed and, I’m sorry to say, it carries a stigma with it that is hard to overcome. I have depression, but not bipolar, tho I’ve been tested for it. I was upset to find out how many people think that depression is a choice and those who suffer from it are lazy, stupid, make poor choices, cause it themselves, just a bad attitude, etc., etc.. And these are things I heard from otherwise empathetic, kind people who are normally empathetic. The stigma is so strong that, after searching fifteen years for help, I not only have no had any successful help, but I’ve alienated and lost the respect of a lot of people, well-intentioned people, who are ignorant and in denial about the existence of the disorder. This is why I look forward to the day I die, though my death will not be at my own hands. Never give up hope, no matter how unlikely it is that things will change for the better some day.

    I know that several celebrities also have multiple sclerosis and I just admire the snot out of them. It forced me into retirement in 2008 and I am sadly certain that they will leave the public eye soon as well. But for now, they have my unwavering respect. I won’t name them because I’m not sure they have told anyone except those of us in the MS network.

    Wow, Sinead O’Connor looks so different nowadays than she did when her Prince-penned song was on the Billboard charts.

      He had both, actually. The blood clots were likely caused by a kidney problem.
