RIP Robin Williams – another needless victim of severe depression?

So sad to hear of Robin Williams’ apparent suicide – but irrationally angry too. I’m always irrationally angry when someone takes their own life, because if they’d just reached out for help maybe they’d still be here and perhaps they may have recovered a desire to live in time. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You want to kill the pain, not the body….and sadly some people feel this is the only way. If you’re in emotional distress, please please reach out!
