Another #Bachelor star takes her own life...

Lex McAllister from Jake Pavelka's (my least favorite Bachelor) season has ended her own life, following in Gia Allemand unfortunate footsteps.  I don't think the show is to blame, but I do think the mindset that you are nothing without your prince charming is definitely an issue.

Lex was said to suffer from bipolar disorder, and "did a good job of hiding it."  That makes me angry for her.  Why should she hide it?  If she had cancer, should she be embarrassed?  

I hope she is at peace and if nothing else, I hope that her death speaks to anyone else suffering from mood swings who needs help to realize it's temporary.  So tragic.
