Robin's 2 Divorces cost him $20 million

Post  Panda on Wed 13 Aug - 9:21

Robin was broke, having forked out $20 million on two Divorces which is why he was depressed. He and his third Wife had only been married 3 years.

Yes Badboy.....I read that.  

Also there has been criticism of the way the U.S. reporting has been so intrusive . Robin was a well loved Man and instead of writing so much about his weaknesses , why did they give so little space to his work with charities?

I think that's just the way that the media everywhere works.

With the exception of a certain infamous couple, the media has never worried about dishing the dirt on people in the news, even at the most inappropriate times.

Just one example, there were complaints made to the BBC about their coverage of the death in a plane crash of the singer John Denver. Was it necessary to mention that he had a drink problem?

Morning NBY, yes the Press anywhere is sensation seeking but this is one of the consequences

There will always be sick people who amuse themselves at the expense of someone else's tragedy.

I don't for once blame the media.

RW has fought depression all of his life, long before money was a problem. In fact, it has been said that he suffered from bipolar disorder and I think that's very likely.

I think perhaps he was a 'manic depressive'.



He was very hyperactive whenever I saw him and manics do have HIGHS and LOWS.



The problem with depression is it never goes away, you just manage it...you learn to live with it.



Off course you feel suicidal, your brain doesn't function properly when your depressed and it is with a good doctor and medication that gets you through that bout and you see the light at the end off the tunnel.


Off course, some people don't make it.

Bipolars have highs and lows too. During the highs they feel they can conquer the world, do anything, accomplish all. As for the lows, getting out of bed may seem an impossible task. Fortunately I think I have no tendency for mental health issues. Although fortunately I've never been through a big tragedy, I've been through some more difficult times but I was able to deal with them in a more or less healthy way. For some things are a lot more difficult.

Bipolar disorder and manic depression are the same thing.

Thanks, NBY.
I know of a couple of cases more or less close to me and the diagnosis was Bipolar Disorder probably because the title is self explanatory. Manic Depression somehow seems darker to me. Anyway, it can be terrible.

Was about to post that, Lioned. Probably too much for him to deal with. So sad.
