Depression may be described as feeling sad and blue, unhappy, miserable, down and withdrawn. Most of us have felt this way at one time or another in our lives but for short periods.
On Monday actor/comedian Robin Williams was found dead by his personal assistant in the bedroom of his California home. The coroner’s report indicated the comedian’s cause of death was “suicide due to asphyxia.” The actor suffered from severe depression.
Robin Williams was an incredible actor and a comedic genius, who apparently masked his pain and struggles in his stand-up routines. But who really knew he was depressed?
There are several forms of depressive disorders, join me tonight at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as I discuss depression and the foundation needed to combat such a state.
All “Conversation links” in this post make it possible to access tonight’s show.
