“There is a stigma surrounding depression that I will shatter before my life is over.”

“I don’t think any part of sexuality should be taboo,” she said.

But she added: “I’m not having any more children. Dax got his tubes tied. I had two borderline autopsies to have our children. So I said, ‘This one’s on you’.”
