  15. why aren't we talking about the real issue about robin Williams. he killed himself because he was so depressed he couldn't live that way anymore and all the help his money could buy couldn't make him better...
  16. the pain he suffered is no more
  17. yes. I feel the same way. I keep hoping my therapist will tell me how to turn it off. where does it come from? I don't think you can talk yourself out of it or medicate yourself out of it. it seems to be coming from nowhere. like a seizure. it can leave just a suddenly. it feels so out of control. are we crazy or just highly sensitive?
  18. 20 years of pill and 8 years of therapy what now? no one has yet to give me the answer. 69 years old and haven't found it .not much time left to look .not getting any smarter
  19. mental health professionals: me: be positive can't someone else's fault isn't magic pill none false hope don't pain if you can't stop the pain tell me you can't. I will deal with it myself until I can't any more
