If it's depression it's probably because that ugly frickin' Denise Richards face is plastered all over the TV these days and she can't get away from the whole situation.

Denise Richards is just butt ugly, isn't she? I've always thought Heather was cute though.

No. I think she'd stop "struggling to stay alive."

Again, as has been said repeatedly here: clinical/chronic depression is not something one suffers only if they've got the time or money. It is not some navel-gazing fit of the "blues."

You dont have to HAVE something to be depressed about to be depressed!
Im taking it most of you making these types of comments have never suffered thru depression....its a chemical imbalance, it has nothing to do with situations, or having everything or having nothing...
She was already on medication possibly has been on it for years we dont know how long she has been on it, while her life may seem perfect and glamorous to most of us...she still has every day issues just like the rest of us.
This is coming from someone who has suffered thru depression episodes for years, Your fine one day even on meds and the next....you may want to kill yourself....for no reason its not something that you can just make go away its an illness

[quote=Dryad;2326990]We don't live in her head and in her home. She is the same age as I am and her divorce was just finalized in 2007. She's going to be 47 this year and has now a 2nd failed marriage that involved infidelity and substance abuse. Who knows what she is feeling? Nobody knows what went on her marriage that she is still dealing with? It's difficult gettting older (especially in Hollywood) and her career is based on looks and youth. It's common to be depressed after a divorce. I hope she gets well soon.[/QUOTE]

i agree, Dryad....i'm not a big fan of hers, but i do hope she gets everything worked out...

I am surprised (but shouldn't be) at how many people right here at Websleuths suffer or suffered from clinical depression. Add me to the group.

I was (finally!) diagnosed in my mid-thirties but in looking back over my life with a therapist, realize that I had had fairly major depressive episodes going back to my early teens.

My father had it, his brother had it, his mother had it. My son has it. My sister's son has it.

I do extremely well on Zoloft. I particpated in indiviual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the time of my initial diagnosis. It was free because I participated in a funded study of depression at a local university.

I have gone for long periods of time without medication - 2,3, even 4 years. In me, a depressive episode is usually triggered by an "event" - a death, a divorce, a job loss, etc. Things that would make anyone depressed. But mine doesn't lift. Fortunately, I know the signs and symptoms to watch for that tell me I need to go back onto medication. (With me it is crying. That's what sends me to my doctor for a prescription.)

My doctor has told me that the current thoughts in the medical world are that if a person has had two or more major depressive episodes in their life they should be on a "maintenance dose" of medication for the rest of their lives. I have not chosen to go that route - yet.

One last thing - at one point I was given citalopram and within 3 months my hair started thinning horribly. I then learned that this is a known side effect of citalopram. I stopped taking it immediately and my hair grew back in. I don't think this is a really common side effect, but it was really scary, so be forewarned.

Best of luck to Heather. Sometimes they want to hospitalize a person in order to give the person a respite from everyday life and also to adjust medications. If she has been drinking along with depression, it would be good for her to be hospitalized.

I do not believe that Heather's depression is a chemical imbalance. However, I don't know Heather, and I don't know her history.
Do people in third world countries not suffer from depression?

And to be quite honest, I don't think you understand depression or you wouldn't be making the comments you're making.

Though it's hard work CBT is a wonderful gift, huh?

I did DBT & I swear by it! I was eventually able to get sober and stop cutting, stop looking for love between some strangers sheets etc etc, I'm sure ya get the point (LOL). DBT taught me coping strategies, alternative behavior choices, insight, cues & triggers of mania and depression. It taught me that I could have a hand in my own recovery but most important, it taught me that I was worth the effort.

I have been on Citalopram (Celexa) for about 6 years and have never had any side effects from it. Medications work differently for everyone and I'm sorry it didn't work for you but I'd hate to hear that someone decided they were not going to use Celexa because it didn't work out for someone else.

It could be what saves their life.. I know it saved mine- and continues to do so.
