    I didn't know about the USO until I read Vance's post. Very impressed.

    TD, I have had the misfortune of dealing for 17 years as a primary caretaker for my sister who suffered from severe bipolar disorder, a symptom of her more serious Huntington's Chorea. I promise you, that many suicides with folks that suffer from this bipolar are not directly drug related. Yes, their medications are drugs per se, and the imbalance of those meds will lead to "stinking thinking" that may well result in suicide attempts (I went through several with my sister), but it's not drug addiction.

    I'm not ruling this out of course, that's what the coroner will do. But if I was a betting man, I'm betting on his illness.

Tough.

    Perhaps he stopped taking his meds.
    Very real possibility. A serious problem for those who suffer from Bipolar disorder.

    Re: Robin Williams committed suicude.

    A small tidbit that speaks to who he was...

    Williams publicly struggled with addiction during his career and most recently went to rehab in June to “fine tune” his sobriety, his rep said at the time.

    The rehab stint would have gone unnoticed, except that the comedian opted to pose with a fan for a photo at a Dairy Queen near the facility, and the picture eventually went viral.

    Re: Robin Williams committed suicude.

    If you haven't seen it, his movie "What Dreams May Come" from 1998 has many connections to him dying today. Maybe that was too strong, but it is a good watch about him dying and saving his wife from hell.

    re: [RIP]Robin Williams Dead at 63 [W:194]

    I'm stunned.

    I'm sad.

    I'm angry.

    I'm sad.

    I'm hurt.

    I'm angry.


    This is just wrong.


    "What Dreams May Come" is now all the more poignant, and yet, we can really hope now, that it will come true for Robin, and his friend Christopher Reeve will lift him out and up.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?
