Depression does not discriminate

I watched the documentary last night about Robin Williams. Very sad, a very outwardly funny character. It reiterates again that depression does not just affect the shy and retiring but people from all walks of life. There have been books from very overt characters like Denise Welch (coronation St.) and Beverly Callard ( same soap) as well as very talented people like Steven Fry. All outwardly cheerful on the outside but battling their demons on the inside. It doesn't matter how rich, poor, famous or talented you are, depression does not discriminate. It does not mean your weak or untalented or incapable. It means your Ill. so take heart from this and don't feel it makes you a lesser person. Your just suffering from an illness like any other. That's my rant for the night! Ahh feeling better now:)
