Lesson #1: Laugh Always and Upside Down

Rosie O'Donnell

I've always loved Rosie O'Donnell for her wit. But now I want to post photos of her all over my desk. What's not to love about a celebrity who hangs herself upside down for 15-to-30 minutes a day to jumpstart her neurotransmitters (along with yoga and antidepressants) using inversion therapy? Seeing Rosie demonstrate it on "The View," reading a teleprompter from a swing, made me laugh out loud at all the ways--some quite creative--we depressives use to treat our mood disorders.
