Review Robin Williams

I think it was such a shock to see such a positive life force as Robin WIlliams give up on life.

I think that is why his death was so upsetting for many people, because on the face of it, he would seem to be the last person to give up on life.. But his work endures and hopefully he will be remembered for the work, rather than the circumstances of his passing.

I'm bipolar, schizoaffective, & have PTSD as well (hell of a combo, I know), & I can understand why he would resort to such measures. Robin was bipolar (from what I've heard), & had just been diagnosed as having Parkinson's (an even worse combo)... Who knows what went through his mind before he took his own life? Maybe he felt that it was all too much to deal w/?

I'm not excusing or condoning what he did, I'm just saying that it's understandable. I remember having suicidal thoughts in my early twenties (due to the PTSD), yet I never followed through w/ it (attempted once, changed my mind at the last second). It's sad that he felt that this was the only way to deal &/or end his issues.

Short answer: yes I think he was a wonderful and outrageous stand-up comedian (from what I've seen on video, sadly never live); also a great actor - and the two don't always go together. Anyone who could deliver the performances he did in Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs Doubtfire and Dead Poets' was covering a lot of bases with huge wit, integrity and style. He's left us a lot, shame it couldn't be more.
