On Monday, when the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., honored Henrietta Lacks by installing a painting of her just inside one of its main entrances, three of Lacks' grandchildren were there.

Danni - I am sorry to hear you have suffered from depression like that. I have battled it on and off myself for years. I have had people tell me similar things and I have thoughts similar to what you have brought up when times get dark. When it is dark having someone there for you who understands is a big thing and frankly at times it is not enough for some. It is a chemical imbalance in the brain - it is physical - sometimes thoughts are not enough to overcome it. Understanding it isn't your fault but you can fight it is probably the biggest thing to beating it in my experience. There however is still a stigma attached to it, acknowledging you have it is still not well received by most and employers especially.

Anyone who watched his shows knows Anthony Bourdain had a dark side. But yes he seemed to love life. I honestly see a lot of similarities to my own personality in his. I am lacking his gifts of gab and wit for sure though. The thing is he had a lot of pressure on him. He had attained a very high level of success. He wanted to maintain that lifestyle (or did he?) He was no longer doing it because he loved it and said as much. Regardless of the reason he sank into a dark place he could not find a way to lift himself out of.

Having a "job" you don't like or even hate can have a pretty negative impact on your psyche - not to mention your physical body. I know this first hand. I kind of feel like I am in a trap at times - it's the American way right? If I wasn't married and the primary earner I would not hesitate to change jobs - even careers. Changing jobs is hard enough though - and frankly I am trying very hard to get out of my job for the first time in 15 years. I have come to realize my problems surround this job and the way it has made me come to doubt my self and my abilities. I actually started listening to family, friends and coworkers again. They have been telling me I am far more talented than I give myself credit for and that I am wasting my life in this position.
