Robin Williams’ Deep Dark Depression Revealed: Couldn’t Be Saved

Tue, August 12, 2014 10:26am EST by 3 Comments

Despite his best efforts to get help, was Robin Williams too deep into his depression to be saved? Multiple reports claim that Robin’s problems had overwhelmed the star, leading him to his untimely death.

It was no secret that Robin Williams, 63, battled with addiction and depression throughout his life and career. Sadly, reports claim that he lost those battles when he allegedly took his own life on Aug. 11. Even though the legendary actor and comedian desperately sought out help for his issues, insiders close to Robin believe it may have been too late for him to get the help that he needed.

Robin Williams Dark Depression Before Death Revealed

As authorities scramble to put together the pieces of Robin’s alleged suicide, reports about the deep depression Robin was in at the time of his death have started to surface.

In fact, insiders close to Robin have revealed to TMZ that the actor had not checked into rehab in July 2014 for his addiction issues, but to “center” himself. Sadly, those same insiders believe that by the time Robin checked in for help, he was too far gone.

“Just before he checked into [to rehab] it was obvious … he had not gotten treatment for so long he was too far down the road,” the insider shared. Robin was also “internalizing all the pain of addiction and it was obvious to anyone who was around him.”

In the short time between checking back into rehab and his death, it has been reported that Robin was working hard to find himself spiritually through meditation. Sadly, it was not enough to save him in the end.

Robin Often Admitted To Being Sad, Struggling With Addiction

One thing Robin was not ashamed of in the years before his death was admitting to and opening up about his struggles.

In 2006, the actor opened up specifically about his non-clinical manic depression and how it affected his day-to-day life in an interview with NPR, reports Us Weekly.

“Do I perform sometimes in a manic style? Yes,” the actor explained. “Am I manic all the time? No. Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? Oh yeah.”

During that same interview Robin revealed he had not been diagnosed with clinical depression.

Our thoughts remain with Robin and his family, friends, and co-workers during this difficult time.

I too will miss the creative mind of Robin williams. He gave joy and happiness to many. The Psychologists and medical field are helpless in helping depression and many other ailments. Use the non popping non cavitating not traction giving non full spine type of Chiropractors on upcspine, practitioners, upper cervical heath centers and the specific chiropractic. Do that now whatever age. That care can do a lot more than you think. Had Robin Williams used that he would still be with us. Stephen Duff Windsor and Richard duff San Francisco california are at the top in that profession.

Once addicted to binge drinking and drugs that is a tough one to call. Maybe a combo of treatments but a good psyc doctor would help the most and only if the patient wants to stop abusing drugs and alcohol more then anything else in this world.
