Fellow Comedian Jamie Kilstein Talks About How Robin Williams Helped with His Depression

Just a few months before Robin Williams' sudden death after succumbing to his battle with addiction and depression, the actor and comedian spent time helping a friend, stand-up comedian and Citizen Radio co-host Jamie Kilstein, with his own struggles.

"Here's the thing about depression. People who get depressed or have addiction, we are really good at taking care of other people, but not always ourselves. Robin would email and ask me how I was. I would tell him, "I'm having a really hard time," and he would write, "Can you talk?" And that night I would get a call from a blocked number. He would say, "Tell me, man, tell me what's happening." I was having panic attacks. I canceled gigs. I told him I couldn't do this anymore.

Here was this guy, who had been through so much, telling me it was okay to feel these things. He was probably telling me what he needed to hear, that it's okay to feel these things. He told me, "You can't let the ass---- get you down." He felt so strongly about encouraging people who were outsiders. He emailed me and said, "Anything I can do to keep the flame alive, let me know." He thought what I was doing was important for some reason.

There was something so warm and genuine and kind about him. The reason he probably knew what to say was that he was going through it, too. You knew he was talking from experience," says Kilstein reports People.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
