    I am glad he is getting the help he needs so many are dealing with this disease in silence hope it brings awareness to this issue.

    maybe the federal investigation he is under is getting to him? he should resign so the people in his district can be represented properly in congress.

    There are drugs that can handle that, if he takes them properly Any imbalance of the combination can send him back in depression. It's a chemical imbalance in the system - it is NOT an emotional or mental illness.

    Get your facts straight folks. Mostly white people suffer from it, so this is fairly rare.
