Suicide and Robin Williams

I must say I am struggling this week with the news of Robin Williams suicide. I am so sorry that he felt unable to deal with the recent progression of Parkinson’s disease due to his depression and anxiety. What a lot to deal with! I cannot imagine what I would do in those circumstances and I cherish what I have, but when I hear of suicide it is with me every day and despite my planning of my 6 day mindfulness plan, I am struggling. I am now missing my group therapy which is the whole month of August! I know it is more than this news for me, as I have more issues than that, but it is definitely a trigger. It is so easy to give up yet so hard to keep going, even though I often feel ‘recovered’. But lives lost have to be a message to those of us who suffer with depression to carry on and not go down that slippery slope. I so wish that Robin and so many others could have won their battles with depression too. I hope that many more will seek help and support as a result of this sad passing. xxx
