    This is so sad. Depression is a chronic disease and treatment should never be stopped, rather take the tablets even if you feel fine.

    Annake de Villiers: ek dink dis tragies!!!! maar ek weet ook wat sy deurgemaak het.... Mens kan net soveel vat en nie meer nie.... Sy was 'n pragtige mens en ek hoop almal wat haar onleed aangedoen het, sal boet daarvoor, want daar is niks so erg soos eensaamheid nie....Rus in Vrede Annake!!!
