    Is this real? I read one report that said Dangerman found him with his wrists cut and overdosed on pills and he took him to the hospital.

    I don't understand why those rich and famous people kill themselves or try to kill themselves.

    Riches and fame aren't all they're cracked up to be.

    If true(the enquirer isn't that credible for me), I hope he gets all the help he needs.

    If the Nat'l Enquirer says it, it's gotta be true.

    Wow, if true, this is shocking. Owen Wilson is one of my favorite actors and I would have thought he had it all. But like HHF said, money only takes you so far. However, it's not very common that a big celebrity just decides to take their own life for no reason.

    This really makes the scene in Wedding Crashers where he is reading "don't kill me books" a lot less funny.
    Hope you can get well Owen.

    Clinical depression is awful, folks. It's got nothing to do with just "feeling down" or "not having it all."

    Yep.

    People who suffer from clinical depression can have just won the mega-mondo powerball and have the cash delivered by a mid-1970's Linda Carter in nothing but a yogart bikini and life would still be a dark, empty, lonely place for that person.

    Clinical depression has little to do with external factors, and everything to do with brain chemistry.

    It's a horrable and frustrating, yet oddly (mostly) easily treated, illness.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    For some people...but certainly not all. People have different reactions to different drugs. A person very close to me has been battling clinical depression for years, and was recently diagnosed with bi-polar disorder. There are good days and bad days, but "good" is relative and "bad" can frequently be awful. This person has tried every drug in the book--Welbutrin, Prozac, Lamictol, Zoloft, Effexor, etc.--all with little or no success. Some made the problem worse, and others had devastating side effects. (This is in addition to counseling and pharmapsychotherapy.)

    People who respond well to anti-depressants and mood stabilizers reside among the fortunate set of depression sufferers. Those who do not can be overcome with feelings of hopelessness and despair, further excaberating the disease's effects.

    As to Owen, I hope he's able to obtain the treatment he needs. I also hope that this further solidifies the fact that depression does not discriminate, and that external forces have very little to do with the effect of the disease on the afflicted individual.

    Good post. I'll just add that to make matters worse, a lot of doctors still don't know how - or don't want - to handle depression because it's messy and difficult. Some will just prescribe the latest drug their pharmaceutical rep gave them samples of and wash their hands of the situation.

    Those who get the help they need truly are fortunate. Best of luck to Owen.

    Re: Owen Wilson Attempts Suicide

    I've read studies that show there isn't really a correlation between money and happiness. The only time it makes a difference is if a person is struggling to survive and/or homeless, in which case money can make a huge difference in that person's happiness.

    Anyway, one thing I would like to iterate is that clinical depression is a disease. Many people (and I'm not making accusations against anyone here) act like clinical depression is practically a choice. I often hear people say things like, "Why would he/she be so selfish and try to kill himself/herself?" So many times, people don't seem to realize that it's not a matter of selfishness. We're talking about people who do not choose to be depressed. They have a chemical imbalance as a result of something completely out of their control. Society just has this ridiculous impression that people choose their personalities.
