How can it be a man like Robin who seemed full of life with money, friends and family yet he is gone? : (
Why his blue eyes alone were so warm he could transform any frown into a smile with a glance of his own.
He had a gift efficiently instantly volá, you’re reform.
It’s just not right a man like that would be so sad to want to die and leave it all behind?
National Institute Of Mental health says more than 38,000 die by suicide each year?
Why that’s more then war or murder and natural disasters combined?
Why such a closet case?
“BECAUSE OF THE STIGMA ATTACHED TO IT”
~~shouts thee person who just now read this.
Perhaps in time once again in his own special way his final act continues to shine a spotlight that will bring back smiles, hope and in many ways awareness to those that suffer silently.
Awareness is everything you see and doesn’t that mean something to thee?
*If you or someone you know is experiencing depression and need help or someone to talk to, call the 1-800-273-TALK
There is no knowing what abyss
a man may harbour behind those
twinkling eyes, winning smile.
No knowing what strangles
the heart of the nightingale.
It is the curse if the comically gifted to suffer from bipolar disorder (or what I used to know as manic depressive illness). In the manic phase they are over-confident and excessive and Robin Williams was almost uniquely, manically comic. However, in the depressive phase suicidal thoughts can abound and unfortunately sometimes get acted on. Stephen Fry was featured in a TV special last Sunday and he admitted to ‘more than once’ feeling suicidal.
Very sad and scary being more and more we hear that suicide is the leading case when it comes to depression.
I imagine the pain they are in is just too much to deal with. And yet from our end way too hard to understand.
