  1. I think it is most likely that every first lady has had some type of addiction and/or depression during their lonely white house years. The later disclosed affairs focusing on the scandalous ex President’s with no mention of what the First Lady’s endure. The wife of Thomas Jefferson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Onassis, Hillary Clinton to name just a few. Bravo to Betty Ford for speaking out and doing something to help. I am sure there are many who owe their lives to this incredible woman. Her legacy lives on.
