Martin Gibson. Don't you ever get tired of feeling so superior to everyone else? People often dont post their name in regard to this sort of thing because there is still a lot of stigma surrounding mental health problems. Admittedly, not fighting the stigma, by hiding what has happened to you might be helping to perpetuate that stigma somewhat, but it shouldn't be solely the responsibility of the sufferer to combat the stigma, especially when they are not in the strongest of positions, emotionally, and encountering more stigma would probably make the condition worse.
Also, web forums are very helpful in depression. Usually (barring the odd idiot like you) they are very supportive and help a person in seeking help, when the person is not capable of making good decisions all the time because of the illness. And if you actually read the posts, not only is there a lot of supportiveness (very useful in helping recovery from depression, as isolation and keeping your feeling in, make the illness worse), but there is also a lot of practical advice and information.
