LEMAÎTREYou're Depressed?
My mother,who died last year in her 90s, suffered from melancholia throughout her life.Perhaps her melancholy was brought on by my father's constant womanizing-hehad too strong a sense of duty to ever leave her or to stop loving her, andtoo much sense of entitlement to ever give up having mistresses-but somehowI doubt it. She grieved terribly after his death 10 years ago; she had beenknown before her marriage as the prettiest but saddest society belle in Athens.
