Odds are I’m dead

Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.

When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.

The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…

But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.

So I’ve been on this site for well over 3 years now and just never bothered to make one of these before. But I’ve met so many lovely, kind and talented people throughout my time here so I thought it was about time to do this. You guys are all amazing and are the reason I come back to this goddamn site everyday. I love you all, okay. ♥_______________________
First of all, let me give a lil shout out to this lil prick: alanprickman
I debated on giving you your own lil section, but like we said, we have to stop being so self conscious about these things and just do it. You already know how important you are to me, so there’s no need for me to repeat what I’ve already said to you cause that all still stands. But you have just helped me so much when I really did it and I’m extremely grateful for that. I value all of our conversations and banter so much and I just feel extremely lucky to have you as a friend. I just wish that we didn’t have to live so far away. I love you lots, you dick. c:______________________
And a lil shout out to these lovely people who I talk to on a regular basis, (or haven’t talked to for a while cause I’m a lil shit, but still). I couldn’t imagine tumblr without you guys and want to thank you guys for making my time on tumblr as enjoyable as it is.

Tell them whatever you like. But make it quick, Remus. I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for.

I remember seeing Flash Gordon when I was a little kid, and to be in whatever that palace was that seemed to be elevated into the sky, living amongst the clouds, that would be really really cool. I wouldn’t put myself in Westeros because it’s just a little bit too dangerous. I would like something easy going and tropical. So if you can think of a fantasy world that has a beach and margaritas, really really good weather, write some fantasy fiction around that and I’d gladly move there.Pedro Pascal
