I would like to think that any award Allison Janney receives is simply a retroactive award for Drop Dead Gorgeous.
I just wrote this same sentiment on Twitter AND IT APPLIES EVERYWHERE!
HERE FOR IT.

Depression and addition are a mother-fucking bitch that so often go hand in hand. They feed on each other, warp your thinking and lie to you. They tell you that you aren’t worthy and that you disappoint everyone you know and that no one loves you. They drown you in feelings that tell you there is no way out from where you are.
People don’t choose to stay depressed or to stay addicted. There is a chemical/neurobiological reason for both of these diseases and sometimes like cancer, you just can’t beat it.
Having watched a family member battle both, it saddens me to see just how woefully undereducated not only the general public but also medical professionals are about these topics. The stigma that surrounds both of these diseases is alarming and it keeps people suffering in silence. Dealing with depression and addiction (for both patients and family members) is like a sick club. No one ever wants to talk about it, but once you do, you are amazed by how many others around you understand what you are going through. I can only hope that as the days and months pass, that people will gain an understanding of the fact that depression and addiction are a disease, not a character flaw or choice.
Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.
A person with depression does not choose to be depressed any more than a diabetic chooses not to produce insulin.
Not only depression but substance abuse as well
does anyone else feel like they just lost their favourite uncle
