Can the outward clown be inwardly tortured - laughing to hide the tears, like Pagliacci?
We recently learned that none other than David Letterman, 65, late night jokester to the world, himself fought depression for 20+ years. In 2003, when beset by a bout of shingles, he finally capitulated, took medication for the depression as well. He said it was like seeing 20/20. He fessed up on the Dec. 20 CBS This Morning.
Sometimes making a comeback is as simple ---- or as difficult ---- as accepting the need for medication.
