I have never met Robin Williams and I never will. So why the title? Robin Williams has always been one of my favourite actors. I love him both in comedy roles and dramatic roles, there will be no new movies.
Yesterday Robin Williams gave into his severe depression and committed suicide. I have cried over this. I have never cried over a celebrity's death before. I talked to Sean about it tonight. I wasn't really crying over Mr Williams death but for my own brush with attempted suicide. I know how deep depression can deceive you saying that life is not worth living. How you are alone in the world. How there is no hope. I was there a year ago.
I fought and tried to get help. Getting help was not easy and it was really not until I intentionally over-dosed that I got the help I needed. At the time of my OD I really did want to die as that was the only way I could see my pain ending. I did not want to hurt Sean and Robbie but the pain was too much. I gave into the pain, luckily I survived with little injury to myself.
I am not the same person I was a year ago. A year ago I could not imagine that I would be where I am now. It has not been an easy journey and I will always have bad times but now I have more skills to deal with the pain.
Mr Williams, I am sorry that you had to give into the pain. My tears are not for you but I do wish you peace.

For the next few months Sean and I are landlords. We have an older male staying with us for a few months. It will be interesting to have another adult here. We moved Robbie upstairs and my sewing room downstairs where Robbie's room used to be. Lots of changes but the additional money will help.

Today I was invested into Cubs (gave my promise). I was called as the assistant Cub leader at the end of December. Robbie was really excited to have me as a leader. I met with the leader and we planned out the rest of the year. So far things have gone well. The program is not that far off from Guiding which I have 10 years experience. I think I bring a lot of experience. We have 4 boys with 2 that should be coming up right away. The small group is both good and bad, good because the boys are HYPER, bad because it is harder to play games.
