Rep. Jackson Reveals Treatment for Depression


U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. revealed that he is being treated for “depression and gastrointestinal issues” at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., ending nearly two months of speculation about his illness and whereabouts but raising new questions about his condition…“Certainly some people do, as part of their depression or anxiety disorder, manifest it with gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,” Matthew Lilly, a psychiatrist in Rochester, Minn., who did a yearlong fellowship at Mayo in 2010 before going into private practice, told the Associated Press.
