Depression Kills
Last month, I was sitting on my sofa with my laptop when I saw the headline “Robin Williams Found Dead.” I was shocked and deeply saddened by the news and the loss. It seemed like such a conundrum as to why someone with his persona would commit suicide. As more information was revealed about his addictions, his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis, and his dealing with severe depression, I totally understood how this unfortunate incident could occur.

A little superficial regarding the origins of the epidemic and the medical use of naloxone, but well worth reading nevertheless. It is superb at portraying the human dimension of what Frazier justifiably calls an “iatrogenic disaster.” By the way, the versatile Frazier is the author of one of the funniest parodi...
