There is a lot of discrimination against people who have depression or other mental conditions. I am glad to read that you had a positive experience publicly describing your struggles with depression and getting treatment. But others have not always had as positive an experience.
For example, members of the Armed Services have a higher than normal rate of untreated depression and suicide. There are a number of reasons for this. But one reason may be that people in the Armed Forces often have to maintain a security clearance. There is often a belief that admitting to a condition like depression could result in losing a clearance.
The costs of posting personal information on the Internet exists for many professions, including medical doctors, psychologists and people in legal or law enforcement professions.
I agree that we are social creatures. We want to connect with other people. But unfortunately that connection is not always without cost.
This is why we built nderground. We wanted a place where people could connect with those in their lives, without having to worry about whether what they post can or will be used against them.
