I, like everyone else was in shock over Robin Williams death. When I first saw someone post on Facebook about it, I thought was another one those hoaxes, then my timeline started going like crazy with the story. Then someone posted TMZ and a post from CNN, it wasn’t a hoax.

Depression is something I know many people do not understand. It more than being sad, it is more then take a pill and it will help you feel better. Robin, as talented as he was, and as kind-hearted as he was, could not overcome this disease.

As I was looking on Facebook and Twitter with the posts about him, if he could see how much people loved him. I know that sometimes just doesn’t help when you have depression. I admit, after what I went through in my marriage to my ex, I have depression. Not to the point Robin had apparently.

It does get to me that I live with no family around me. I do feel like I am stuck in Cleveland. It is hard when I have to go and visit my family, They seldom come up to see me. I get forced a lot to do things myself, and it will get to me. So I get depression, I understand it because I deal with it. Truthfully, it is one the reasons I cook and bake, that is my stress relief. It actually helps in a way so I don’t get into a deep depression.

Even though I deal with it, I am lucky. I might be all alone here in Cleveland, I do have good friends. When I was off of work the first time for a few months in a cast 4 years ago, I knew I had good friends when I ran out of toilet paper, it is Friday night, I can’t drive and the bus that takes you to the market doesn’t come until Monday. So you send out a text and a friend brings you a roll from her house to tide you over till Monday. Yes, that is a true story.

I was a big fan of Robin Williams when I was looking through my photos to see what recipe I should do for for for him, this one stood out. He was a big kid. I heard how he entertained people when he was a patient in the hospital. You look at movies like Aladdin, Jack, Mrs. Doubtfire, you see that kid like comedic touch. This is perfect for a great talent Robin Williams was.

Serendipity’s is who made frozen hot chocolate famous from what I understand. I know it is a drink, but I wanted to take up a notch and make a Popsicle out of it. When was talking about it with a friend, I admitted I don’t have a Popsicles mold. She told me what she does when she makes homemade Popsicles, she uses little plastic cups and uses a plastic spoon for the handle. I understand the cups, but a spoon? She explained the kids can hold it better. So I tried it, you know, I am not a kid, but she was right, you do hold it better with the spoon!

    my kids would love these frozen hot chocolates, and love the spoon as the stick, genius! we are all so heartbroken about robin williams, such a loss of one of the funniest men out there. i know what it’s like to live away from family and how lonely that can be…luckily we have FaceTime and Skype to get us through those tough days! so happy to have found your site and looking forward to reading and connecting!

    Thank you for this honest, candid post, Deanna! I, like you, was shocked at Robin Williams’ passing, and it just makes me so sad, but I think the dialogue that has happened since has been good with folks opening up with their own struggles because depression is absolutely real for so many people.

    Also, this was one of my favorite links at last week’s #thatsfreshfriday link-up! I’ll be sharing it (and your blog!) at my website tonight as we kick off the next party. Keep up the great work, and I hope to see you back sharing more links at this week’s shindig!

    Thanks for sharing your recipe at the party! I have never seen a Popsicle recipe like this. Sounds yummy. Robin Williams is one of my favorite comedians and actors I was really sad to hear of the news. I wish everyone would reach out to someone before thinking of going to that degree. Such a loss. Hope to see you again this week @DearCreatives
