    I'm pretty sure I'm going to be incredibly broken up about this tomorrow when the shock wears off.

    Already there.

    Very sad by this and I don't normally blink when people I never met die.

    It's crazy to think that he lived for 63 years with depression. What happened today that made him decide that he was done?

    This is so surreal, I'm not sure I believe it yet even though we are all sitting here talking about it.

    I love Robin Williams. His stand-up, his comedies, his drama, and his suspense. He made Good Will Hunting.

    I want to talk about him as a person, but I don't want to talk about him in the past tense because I really don't want this to be true.

    I'm just kind of rambling now, but I'm at a loss on what else to do.

    I heard Robin Williams died. I was sad.

    I put the news on and saw he committed suicide. I feel like someone just punched me in the gut.

    Jesus, just heard the news and in shock.

    And he killed himself due to depression?!

    My mind can't comprehend this.

    It is my understanding that Robin struggled with depression for much of his life

    Didn't know until this.

    Suddenly his career as a comedian and attempts to make people laugh explains so much.

    It's a pretty much always with comedians and comic actors.

    god, this special was so good

    I was blessed to catch him when he came to st. louis during the stand-up tour he did after the one in that video, which I'm pretty sure was his final tour

    the dude had a policy of having only two thirds of his show be pre-prepared material, with the other third being improvised and/or custom to the city where he was performing

    I remember he teased some folks near the front who showed up late about how they clearly had to be from ladue, which is the super wealthy bourgeois city of the st louis area

    See Spike Milligan for another textbook example.

    I am spectacularly not okay with this. It sodding well haunts me that someone who made me laugh until I peed as a kid had to die in so much torment.

    it's a common thing for artists in general, but comedians especially will turn to creating humor as a way of coping with their own sorrow

    I don't know which is worse. This Ramis or Hoffman.

    All I know is we've lost some people who influenced several generations. And man, Philip Seymour Hoffman and William, the way they went is just fucking tragic.

    We tend to say "fuck this year" every year. Important people are always dying, the internet age just makes damned sure we know when it happens.

    I can not think of another celebrity death that has impacted me this way. Most other celebrities I think "wow that sucks" but this one, this one is a big deal to me.

    What's true of the best of us holds for the rest of us

    An absolute tradgedy to be sure - it's as good a time as any to reflect on how depression can really get a hold of you.

    Please know that you are never alone, there are people who will always listen and as with any illness there are therapies available. Please also do not wait until you are in crisis to seek help (not to say you shouldn't when you are in crisis).

    Robin Williams will always hold a fond place in my memories, RIP

    help a fellow forumer meet their mental health care needs because USA healthcare sucks!

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better
