Stop The Madness: Robin Williams Psych Meds

shutterstock_168650885My sister heard me sound upset over the phone during a recent episode of depression. Then she sent me this article which turned my depression into an angry beast. (See link below.)

My thoughts on it, can’t wait to hear yours…

Why is it that mainstream media doesn’t look at the more then obvious fact that Robin Williams was medicated for mental health and had a drug that might have prompted his suicide? Why is everyone trying to hide it? Why is everyone so ignorant? Or why is everyone so afraid? Why are we still here in this modern age shoving aside obvious reasons why people kill themselves. Why people go on killing streaks in schools, or movie theaters. Why are we so un-evolved that we look at the glossy forest but can’t see the trees?

Are we a lost people, or just stupid.

When and how are things going to start to break through and make a tiny change? I’m not asking for people to recognize or understand, or accept, or not fear mental illness. I’m just angry that we put a known blanket over a bright hot pink elephant in our culture.

Stop the madness. Really, people.
