“MY HEART IS BROKEN, SHATTERED, HURTING, with SILENT ANGER” …
“AND PLEASE, DON’T TELL ME MENTAL HEALTH, ADDICTION, RELAPSE and SEVERE DEPRESSION DOESN’T TAKE PRECIOUS LIVES”
“Like many in the past hour or so, I’m heart-broken by the passing of one of the most prolific ‘Man Of Comedy’ there ever will be in my opinion. It really saddens me that another human being felt the need to extinguish his life due to addiction relapse, and mental illness. It’s been well-known that Robin Williams has battled addictions for sometime, but the mental illness seemed to be kept more a secret, and kept close to the vest. And it’s just another example of Severe Depression claims lives”
OK, so maybe this is not the proper time to go into this, but how many more lives are going to be taken away from the cunning effects of Mental & Emotional Illness & Disorders? When is it going to happen when mental illness gets pushed more into our Headlines? Talked about? Shared? Better yet, how many more people died today because of mental illness, suicide, abuse and miss use of their psych meds? How many died today of Addiction Relapse? If I sound pissed off, I AM! I lost my sister-in-law to this exact combination of mental illness, psych med intentional overdose and suicide due to asphyxia.
