Robin Williams

And in the second podcast, at about 52 minutes in, is the weirdest most compelling riff by Robin on suicide that gave me chills. Delightful, never heard anything like this. Not like his standup at all.

As one would well imagine, there has been quite a bit of discussion about Robin Williams on these boards. This clip just makes me so very, very sad.

 

(What's kinda cool, though, is that I can tell this sorrow is "mine," organic to me and not due to the meds. I'm lately having increasing luck distinguishing between the two sets of emotions. Still sucks when the neuro-emotions hit - like they did about 10 min ago. But when an authentic emotion, even a painful one, takes their place, I'm, like, "yay!") 

 

God bless his soul, indeed. 

Thankyou for that, I keep hoping,

Has anyone been thinking what I'm thinking about Robin William's suicide? He had been in rehab and you know he had seen a psychiatrist and the chances were very high that he was on psychiatric drugs.....

 

Suicidal side effects anyone?  :(

 

God bless his soul.

hypoaesthesia, myoclonus, nystagmus, Parkinsonism, restless legs ... 

 

I have looked up effexor and I know it is listed as a side effect for that drug along with a few others I have taken however it was on when I was taking E that I had the symptoms of parkinsonism. 

 

Check you drug monograph it will be there.

seeking peace.

just a reminder

 

how does a Doc expect to treat parkinsons while giving a drug that causes all the symptoms

it is crazy making

makes no sense to me

 

The Robin Williams threads have been joined the broken link mentioned by me about is now contained within this thread. The important bit I was worried about losing is in the quote linked to this message Antidepressants have Parkinson listed as a side effect... keep that in mind when deciding to take the drug and look up the specific drug monograph for the drug offered to you .. don't rely on the one page print out the drug store gives you with you pills.  I was done taking all antidepressants long before I ever googled a drug monograph... it is an important thing to do.  These days we have computers we have access please read about your drugs before you take them.  Know what can happen be prepared. 

peace

He was on mirrazapine which lowers dopamine. Parkinson's is believed to be linked to low dopamine.

Wake up world!

Maybe one of his family members will find the information and look into it.  I am sure it is the last thing a grieving family wants to do.  Muddles hope you are doing ok. 

peace

I saw an actor on a TV show tonight who looks a little like him and now I'm feeling sad again.

 

I still miss him. Not like the people who knew and loved him personally do, of course, but from time to time I see a picture of him or something reminds me of him, and I feel sad he's not in the world any more.

 

He and I are close in age, and his kids are my kids' ages, and my daughter is having a baby soon, my first grandbaby. That's not something he ever lived to see. His grandchildren will never know him. Such a loss.

 

I'm still certain his life was screwed up by psych meds the same way mine was, with the tragic difference that I found out in time to stop my descent. 

 

If his family ever does see this: I'm so sorry for your loss. There are hundreds of thousands like you. Read Whitaker, read Breggin, read Gotzsche, you're part of a terrible, tragic story. It's almost unbearable, once you know.
