Mrs. Doubtfire gone? A bit on mental wellness

robinwilliamsRobin Williams, beloved actor whose comedic routines, many different facades and brilliant humor which has made millions laugh for many, many moons is said to have died this morning at the age of 63.

At this time I do not believe a cause of death has ruled, but the media mills are stating a suicide. I sincerely hope that is not the case.

Either way it is very sad indeed and I know the world has lost a talented, kind man.

Since I have battled severe depression over my lifetime I do know how overwhelming it can be and just how lost it can make someone feel. Even when your life is seemingly perfect and things appear to be going well there is this dark, consuming feeling of disparity and dread that you can’t shake. It makes me so sad to hear that Robin Williams, a man who brought so many laughs to others, might have been in that darkness. So sorry for his family and I pray for their healing.
