I know what you're saying, and I think I probably poured all that out onto the keyboard after a really long day at the office, but working with depressed and suicidal young people, as well as bright young things who love life, I'm afraid my sympathy (which incidentally comes between 'shit' and 'syphilis' in the dictionary) cannot extend to an attention-seeking floozie who is only interested really in keeping her column inches up, her name at the column head and the paychecks in. Sorry if that sounds blunt and unsympathetic, but it probably is in her case.
Fair enough, and to be honest I'd also had a shit day! I do think, having read the article, that Brick is genuine, but you're right in that she - unlike most people - has an interest in keeping up her exposure and also has a forum that most of us don't have. We don't know when she had this episode after all; could have been any time. If the Mail would use this as a stepoing off point to give a few people from different backgrounds the chance to talk about their depression, that would be awesome. But they won't, there might be a couple of letters in the dead tree version and it'll be onto the next thing
