If you've got time to be depressed, you have too much free time. Get over it and accept life isn't about rainbows and butterflies and constant positive affirmations.
    You are totally clueless.

    A number of my former co-workers did and our insurance paid/pays for it. Lowly developers and marketing people, for example. Many more in the emergency room thinking they were about to have a heart attack, though.

    I thought that's what fancy spas were for. Being in a hospital, even the nice ones, is no fun and games.

    What confused me about the "Star" article was that she was being treated for anorexia. Would doctors be able to diagnose it so early, if it was supposedly set off by her separation? If she were at a normal slender weight, could it have created seizures this early?

    Correct. I have made assumptions.

    I've no doubt that Melania is intelligent and spirited. A man like Trump can find a woman who is smart as well as beautiful. But I do think that a trade-off is required to marry Trump . The prescription of beauty in exchange for money has limitations and when your beauty is the currency that gets you luxury and status, there is usually a trade-off. Trump has power and authority, and he needs adoration. I think it is fair to say that he is not looking for an equal partner. Not to mention, one of the problems with a much younger partner, for both men and women, is an inequality of life experience. When a man of 70 marries a woman of 25, there is an obvious gap in life experience.

    As a side comment, I looked at my boarding pass for the ferry from Vancouver Island to Tsawassen (on my way home to Vancouver), it said "COUGAR". I thought that might be the name of the ferry, but when they did the "You may be asked to abandon ship..." safety announcement, they called it the Coastal Celebration. Hmmmm...
