Two of my all time favorite Hollywood folks passed. I fell in love with Lauren when I was a wee tacker. It took "Good Morning Viet Nam" to show me the wacky brilliance that existed in Robin's mind............ I will miss them, but not their work. It is forever captured on film for all of us to enjoy............ R.I.P. Robin and Lauren.
Which brings me to "the Black Dog" as Winston Churchill called his episodes of Depression. I suffer from Depression also. It did not come on until I was fifty or so. I refuse to ingest the chemical fixes pushed by the Healthcare
What I cannot control are the reactions to my depression from the folks I interact with on a daily basis. There is little sympathy or understanding. Most if not all go automatic and tell me I need to see a doctor............ Fuck that. I believe it was medicine I was prescribed in 2001 that turned mild depression into the nasty Hell I fall into now. They can take their medicine and shove it ............. Americans place too much confidence in the AMA and their masters, the pharmaceutical industry. I have had much better luck self prescribing.
