Autopsy!

You didn’t see that one coming, did you?!

I don’t normally write about television shows, but this one is amazing and I just wanted to share…My partner gives me “Not this again” eyes, when I try telling him about the newest episode.

Autopsy: The Last Hours of…Is about certain well known, mainly celebrities who have died seemingly before their time, or have a lot of Myths surrounding their deaths. It does take into account some of the Myths, because sometimes the Myths to do have some truth to them. The deaths are investigated by either one of three different forensic pathologist/psychologist.

  • Dr Richard Shepherd – Has been in the most episodes.
  • Dr Anjula Mutanda
  • Jason Payne-James

So far the ones that I have seen are about Michael Hutchence (INXS), Robin Williams, Bruce Lee and Marilyn Monroe. As well as some I have not yet seen (the show is usually on here at 11pm at night on a ‘work night’) Such as Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Maurice Gibbs and Janis Joplin. There were a couple of others that I have seen, but they have been a little less known. The show is narrated by Iain Glen (aka Jorah Mormont).

If you are interested in the mind and are kind of interested in how peoples minds work before their deaths, this is a good show for that. This isn’t really a “crime” show because none of these people died while necessarily committing a crime. It’s all about what lead up to their deaths and what it might have been like for them in the last 25 hours of their lives. How possibly, if it all, their deaths could have been prevented.

Take the Bruce Lee “case” for example, an injury roughly three year prior to his death…Ultimately caused his death. A slipped disc three years prior meant that Bruce Lee started to take steroids quiet regularly. We know now the dangers of constant steroid taking, but Bruce Lee and I doubt the people around him knew that much about it at the time. Only a couple of months earlier he had collapsed and the only reason he did not die that particular time was because they were able to get to the hospital on time.

Whereas and probably the saddest one that I watched was about Robin Williams and while ultimately he died by his own hands. There were SO many factors in his death, not just that he was “unhappy”. You probably have heard rumours that Robin Williams had Parkinson or something similar. It was determined that Robin Williams died by Lewy Body Dementia. 

Lew Body Dementia is a rare form of Dementia and something that I would not wish on my worse enemy, let alone Robin Williams, who brought so much joy. It not only causes your usual dementia symptoms, but it becomes much more severe. It’s almost like you have Parkinsons AND Alzheimer together, on top of that the person suffering is more like to suffer from extreme hallucinations.

While the above is depressing, it’s made me realise that Robin Williams it STILL a hero to me when it comes to mental health. I’m sure if he hadn’t of had Lewy he would have fought his depression.

Back on topic…

If this seems like an interest to you, please watch it! It is completely fascinating.

 

Especially Awesome Award

So I was nominated by the AWESOME Bookmark Chronicles for the Especially Awesome Award (found here:https://bookmarkchronicles.wordpress.com/2016/01/19/epically-awesome-award/)

Rules:

  • Explain why you’re awesome (simple enough)

I am not one of those people who this statement can easily come too. I’ve just had a lot of people in my life who were close to me put me down, so that makes it hard to think I’m awesome…and sound humble at the same time,lol.

There’s a quote by Robin Williams (at least there’s a lot of pictures on the internet saying that it’s his saying) ”

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”

I think that’s why I’m awesome, life is hard enough and why should I contribute to making people’s lives any harder? I try to be everybody’s friends (as long as doesn’t endanger myself or others). People ask me a lot “Why are you so nice?” It’s because I don’t understand why I should mean? Unless someone deserves me to be angry with them, I don’t find it necessary to be nasty with me. I’ve met girls who are mean just because they “feel” like it and what perplexes me even more if guys who are obsessed with them. As nice as I am, I can honestly say that I am no ones monkey!

So we are supposed to tag people in this, so please don’t feel like you have to do this and if you want to just do it. Feel free!

Robin Williams <3

Originally I was going to take a ‘hiatus’ from all types of social networking sites (except for this Sea Eagle webcam that I am now watching in replacement of the little Baby O’s). However I happened to peer over the shoulder over a friends computer while they were reading some news on the computer and saw the extremely sad news =( At first I thought he had died from a heart attack, but now it appears that it looks like a suicide.

I think this is one of the genuine times that I feel really upset about hearing of a “celebrities” death. I absolutely LOVED Robin Williams, he always had me cracking up…or in some cases, really freaking me out and making me cry.

‘Lightning storm of comedy’ Robin Williams dies of apparent suicide” “The Australian 2014”.

Robin Williams just had this amazing ability to take any situations and just make you laugh till your tummy and cheeks hurt and the tears rolling down your face and you have to walk out of the room because you cannot breath any-more…Can’t forget his dramatic pieces of work either! That man had so many facets and was extremely talented. I always thought that there was a bit of sadness, but it was always hard to see between the laughing. There was always just something in the background, but it’s one of things that you notice if you’re watching his stuff over and over again. I think he needed the hyperactivity to keep his mind off of other stuff…That is just my personal opinion though. His drug and alcohol addiction was pretty well known over the years…Still it is shocking.
