    Re: Robin Williams committed suicude.

    I must wonder if Robin would think it's too soon for a joke. I look forward to it, I think he'd want people to laugh.



    I am posting on the assumption that his death was a drug induced suicide.
    Perhaps he stopped taking his meds.

    The fact that a person is clean does not remove their severe depression--many times it only enhances the depression.

    Especially if they are on strong prescriptions for depression which themselves have serious side-effects causing more depressive behavior.
    I choose to move forward to an outlook of how we can all benefit as a society from his loss--something I'm sure he would want .

    Sorry, Mom. I'll post what I am comfortable with posting, and I'd suggest you do the same, mmmK? Now let's stop derailing the thread. If you don't want to talk about his demons, then don't. But don't give anyone else a hard time if they choose to do so. Williams was an addict. He is now dead. The two may or may not be related, and that's why some of us are having this discussion.

    now Williams

    what I have always wondered is

    without drugs would they have been as popular or creative as they were?

    But...but....but...were you not the one that listed Williams among all the others that did die from drugs just a few posts above? Already making the assumption that indeed his death was caused by drugs? Hey that's alright. ..Carry on,,,,,

    Re: Robin Williams committed suicude.

    I understand how you feel vesper.
    It takes one to know one and I am one and don't mind admitting it right now.
    I can attest to what it's like to lick your vices for 30 years and still be bedeviled by your demons--thank GOD I had teaching and my Students.
    It might as well been yesterday when Mom told me not to come home again back in 1984 due to my drinking.
    Thank GOD for Moms .

    Whether you liked his politics or not, you have to admire his heart. We all know he had his gifts. But his heart. Immeasurable. Ask Vance about how giving he was to the USO. He was salt of the earth.
