    But pictures like that are also used in headache medicine ads. I just don't think it is mocking depression or meant to do that. I'm sorry you're offended, but it still feels like a leap to me. I would not have connected those things and I am depression-savvy, I have friends who have suffered from it and my mom was a psychiatric nurse.

    Aww, that is too bad. (I have not heard that expression in years! I used to say it all the time as a teenager.)

    lol, I figured as a site admin I should not swear, not sure what words they block ...

    I posted why life is bad in the Host forum but my birth mother died Tuesday. Having a rough go of it.
