Does it affect you in any way when I popular celebrity who suffers from depression seems to give up and end their life? Today, Robin Williams was found dead from an apparent suicide after years of battling dependency on drugs and alcohol (I think) as well as depression. I have seen the outpouring of sympathy and sorrow in the "normal" world. This kind of reminds me of when Curt Kobain killed himself. I know many here battle depression so I was wondering if this makes you more depressed or does it make you more determined to battle on. Or does it not affect you at all?
