Rosie O'Donnell says she began being treated for depression after the Columbine shootings and hangs upside down for up to a half-hour a day to improve her mental state. During a taping of The View to air Friday she said:
"I couldn't stop crying," she said on an episode taped for ABC's "The View" and due to air Friday. "I stayed in my room. The lights were off. I couldn't get out of bed and that's when I started taking medication."
Anyone concerned about the stigma of taking medication for depression should know that "it saved my life," she said.
When she began taking antidepressants, O'Donnell, 44, said she began yoga and "inversion therapy," where she hangs upside down by a swing for 15 to 30 minutes a day. She demonstrates it on "The View."
O'Donnell said she also has seasonal affective disorder, often called SAD, the wintertime blues that can strike when the days grow short. SAD is characterized by recurrent major depressive episodes during the fall and winter.
Ok, so that explains why she's such a racist bitch and a stupid bully who thinks that writing in haiku makes her deep. Then too the thought of her hanging upside down makes me worry about the floor.
