Marian Keyes laid low with depression

There is a very sad new post on Marian's Keyes' very pretty(!) new website; the chick lit queen responsible for nine best selling novels including "Sushi for Beginners" and "Watermelons" is taking a break from writing "because I am laid low with crippling depression. Regular readers know that I’ve been prone to depression on and off over the years but this is in a totally different league. This is much much worse."

You can read the whole (short) piece here.

You can also leave messages of support in the comments section. I know first hand how crippling mental illness can be and I wish Marian a speedy and safe recovery.

That's really tough. She is an amazing woman for writing so aptly about depression; I guess one can only do that if they have experienced it themselves. She is also very brave for sharing her current condition via her website. Here's wishing her a supportive recovery.
