    Hey Eunoia, that's really nice of you to post that. It gives people an idea that they're not alone and also that they can be successful despite their problems. When I say "successful" I mean in their own ways of course - not necessarily becoming a movie star.

    People who have suffered from depressive disorders

    The History Channel (on American cable) has been advertising an upcoming biography on Abraham Lincoln with this line:

    "He Fought Two Wars. One Was In His Head."

    Abraham Lincoln is best known as the emancipator of slaves and one of the country's most mythic figures. But few know that Lincoln battled suicidal urges and at times called himself "the loneliest man in the world." Academy Award-winning producer Vikram Jayanti explores this Lincoln in THE HISTORY CHANNEL special presentation LINCOLN, airing Monday, January 16th 2006 at 8-11pm ET/PT.
