Such an interesting topic I had to come back. I do OK with my current blue collar job. But I gotta admit, I might likely have been a psychiatrist or a lawyer or something had I not had depression all my life. Heck, it took 10 years to get through college with all the down periods making study impossible. So though I do OK where I'm at, I think I missed out on far greater things as a direct result of untreated depression. I don't share my condition with anyone at work, but I am quick to defend anyone with mental problems. One girl in my company has been out of work with manic depression, and the stigma seems pretty strong. People view her as some kind of alien or deserter or weakling or something. So for me, easy does it, walk soft. JohnL.
