Harold A. Maio, you claim to be a "mental health editor"? (whatever that is) Well, I am certainly glad you are retired.
The fact that Cheryl was worried about how depression would effect her career is EXACTLY what needs to be discussed!!! There IS a stigma that needs to be addressed and changed! How DARE you imply that her husband "held this prejudice in his mind". and by "repeating it, will cause harm". By "repeating it" he may bring about an honest discussion that may hopefully lead to change.
You are a complete moron.
