Its not cowardly, and its not selfish. Depression turns you inside out. You can't think, or breathe, and some days it just seems easier to end it all. Trust me.

Depression doesn't make a person do rational things. No judgment whatsoever from me. I'm just very, very broken hearted by this. Please do everything you can to seek help if you're suffering fr

Robin Williams wasn't an unhappy soul. He was a beautiful soul. A wonderful person who made millions laugh, cry and feel things they otherwise were unable to feel without his help. Was he unhappy, mor

Still thinking of Robin Williams and many others lost before their time.

Of course, this wasn't a film with Robin in it, but I can't help but think of him and others when I watch these two clips. I'm not necessarily a religious person, but I like this:

[VIDEO]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GorgFtCqPEs[/VIDEO] Just saw this video linked to. Robin Williams playing around with Koko the sign language gorilla.

Apparently, along with depression and anxiety, he was struggling through the early stages of Parkinson's. My heart breaks for him and his family.

Carlin's bit is as much like an Occupy Movement rally speech as it is a comedy sketch on golf. The audience cheers on those jabs at us evil, corporatist, ignorant, racist, and plain stupid golfers. Wow. There were some funny moments but the demonization seemed more frightening than light-hearted. I've liked Carlin's edgy stuff but I'll respectfully disagree with his overall angle on this one. As always, Robin Wiliams was brilliant though! "So just one hole?.... Oh no, 18 f@$&/!-ing holes!" Riot.

Robin Williams was one of a kind. Julliard educated, multi-talented, perhaps the quickest wit known to mankind, and a person spoken highly of by everyone who knew or met him.

It seems that there is a link between Parkinson's and depression. We would expect that any person would get more depressed with the diagnosis of any debilitating disease but maybe the link with Parkinson's goes beyond that.

I even heard one report that symptoms of depression can show up before the symptoms of Parkinson's and that the two could be somehow intertwined more than the obvious.

This article focuses on the drugs used to treat Parkinson's and a part they may have played.
