I was just coming over to make the same thread. I am seriously going to miss him. Let's tribute him by posting some favorite clips...

I was just reading the news about this.
This is very sad. He was amazingly good.
Only gratitude for all the good moments he gave us.

This is what I woke up to.

My only verbal reaction, to go along with extreme sadness, was one word.

"Fuck."

Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. You are already missed.

I actually liked The Crazy Ones. The writing quality dropped somewhat on the last few episodes but it was good fun watching Robin Williams again on a regular basis. Damn.

Depressed may have been a poor choice words, but I am severely bummed out. There was a good year or so during my childhood that Good Morning Vietnam was my favorite movie. I was a weird kid.

His wife has apparently stated he was battling with early stage parkinsons? Poor bugger.

I guess the maladies were starting to pile up...Kinda went the way of Hunter S. Thompson...

The thing is, depression- clinical depression- isn't necessarily linked with an event (like getting a diagnosis of parkinsons). It's a profound feeling of "lowness" that is there, in the background, every day. It can be exacerbated by bad news, feeling ill, or taking depressants like alcohol and drugs. Combine depression with depressants AND bad news? A guy could feel like there's no light a the end of the tunnel. Stay in that state long enough, and things go bad.

If there's one good thing about all of this, it's made public awareness rise again. If that saves just one person...

The diagnosis may not have caused the onset of depression, but one of the effects of Parkinson's disease is often depression. Therefore, whatever depression he was dealing with already may have been compounded by the disease (Parkinson's) itself.

It truly begs the question: Are anti depressants the only way out? I know someone who's been on anti depressants for about 18 years...she's terrified to get off of them, but she wants to get off of them.
But that's a discussion for another thread.....on another forum....

There's been a lot of new discoveries about depression. Some people don't produce hormones the way they should, therefore a medical "ammendment" is in order. There's others who go on medication until therapy can reverse the effects of a lifetime of negativity. Basically, they need to train their brains not to take the path it's accustomed to taking. It's different for everyone. But regardless of whether it's therapy or meds, the stigma needs to be removed. Just like someone with a shoddy heart might need a pacemaker, or someone with a broken leg might need a cast. If someone needs meds or therapy to "get better", there shouldn't be shame in that. Of course, in the case of your friend, easier said than done.
