Hi All

Just wondering for those on this board, when you see a "celebrity" fall due to their depression, like Mindy mcCready recently (although given yes she had other issues apparently).  Does seeing/reading things like that have any affect on your depression, good or bad

I can actually go both ways at times.... like you were saying being in a black hole but also the flip side... internal struggle I guess I'm dealing with
