It's hard to believe that depression took his life.
He brought joy to so many people and he struggled with depression.
He will be greatly missed.

He talked about it in interviews over the years. No doubt they are floating around the net somewhere.

you'd have to be in a pretty bad place to be selfish enough to take your own life, and leave those behind to suffer terribly.

it's a battle, for them it's not selfish.

One could argue as to why his family and friends did not recognise his demons.

From the interviews I have read and watched, he had a few problems there as well.........

In my experience you often can't tell and that adds to the trauma experienced by those left behind.

Yes it effects everyone left behind for the rest of their days.

I had a guy here a few months ago installing a BBQ, this was the second one he'd done for me, he told me he was fighting depression and had just come out of hospital and had tried to suicide a few times, voices told him to.  I mentioned to him about those that are left behind but 3 weeks later he was dead, his partner said he just couldn't cope any longer so severe depression must be hell on earth.

Sounds like with Charlotte Dawson that financial problems got to him.  They are saying his 2 divorces cost him a fortune and that he payed all of Christopher Reeves medical bills when his money ran out.

He made so many shows and movies he was like a part of eveyone's life and no one had a bad word to say about him.
