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. Of course, the naysayers had to emerge and utter incoherent ramblings about cowardice and his leftist views that made him unhappy. All of the unintelligent garbage that gets re...

Tox on the web: narcotic noodles, intranasal narcan, and much more!
The Antidote: A long piece in the  The New Yorker by Ian Frazier describes the epidemic of overdoses from both prescription opiate analgesics and heroin, how that epidemic affects the New York City borough of Staten Island, and the potential role of intranasal naloxone in reducing the number of deaths. 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...
