Christina Kim Struggles With Depression

from my blog: LPGA Star Christina Kim Chronicles Battle With Depression On Blog | Fairways and Forehands

To say that the image of Christina Kim on the LPGA is one of being an unbridled free spirit is an understatement. So it comes as a surprise to read of her struggle with depression. To hear Christina talk of thoughts of suicide makes me think of the tragic passing of Erica Blasberg. I’m sure there are a lot of people who can offer up dime store psychoanalysis of Christina and what she needs or doesn’t need. I would only say that she needs to continue seeking treatment from a credible psychologist. Just taking the steps she already has is a good sign. To read Christina’s blog entry…and I recommend reading it…please go here: Christina Kim’s Struggle With Depression

Good podt, BKB. It goes to show that we can't always tell what goes on with some people by their public persona.

From my observation, Christina Kim has a number of emotional issues. Sorry to hear that depression is one of them. This can be a tough illness to overcome.
