Rosie O’Donnell–the most annoying of four extremely annoying yenta’s on ABC’s “The View” (and, yes, that includes airhead phony conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck)–says she began treatment for depression after being extremely depressed by the Columbine school shootings.
Glad to know that Rosie–a total stranger and NOT the parent or relative of a single victim of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris–is the one most affected by the tragedy.
O’Donnell says that as part of her treatment, she hangs upside down for up to a half-hour every day to improve her mental state. And judging by what we see on TV, it isn’t working.
The woman is still a raving lunatic and hating America is part of her mental disorder. More from AP:
Rosie O’Donnell says she began being treated for depression after the Columbine school shootings and hangs upside down for up to a half-hour a day to improve her mental state.
When gunmen killed 13 people at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999, O’Donnell said she felt as if it had happened to her children.
“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.” . . .
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.”
Can’t wait to see that.
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.
She’s “instantly happy” on sunny days but feels as if she’s being tortured when it’s cloudy. She feels the most important thing to do when you’re feeling depressed is to get up and move.
“Like in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ the color goes out,” she said. “That is what happens in depression. Everything gets gray.”
So sad, too bad. Gee, she seems awfully un-depressed and very happy when American troops are in trouble in Iraq. Call that Non-Seasonal Hate-America Disorder.
Hanging upside down won’t fix that. But Rosie shutting the hell up certainly will.
