Lynne Rosen an John Littig

Yo guys, get ready for some dark times. Like something out of a Todd Solondz movie, self-help radio show hosts Lynne Rosen, 46, and her boyfriend John Littig, 48, committed suicide together Wednesday night, by suffocating themselves with plastic bags. The pair hosted a show called “The Pursuit of Happiness” on WBAI Pacifica radio, and regularly spoke about how to overcome depression and lead more fulfilling lives. Rosen, a trained psychotherapist, was the main host of the show, and Littig––a motivational speaker and life coach by trade and a musician on the side – often appeared with her. Together, Littig and Rosen founded the company Why Not Now, a life coaching program designed to “foster your inner strengths, identify hidden and untapped resources, and put you confidently on the path to designing the life you’ve always wanted to live.” Keep reading »

Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of the late pop star Michael Jackson, was hospitalized last night after an alleged suicide attempt. TMZ reports that a 911 call was placed from the family’s Calabasas, California, home around 1:30a.m. regarding a possible overdose and “multiple cuts on one of her wrists.” The teen was taken from the home at 2a.m. to a nearby hospital and reportedly will make a full recovery. This morning, Paris Jackson’s mom Debbie Rowe told “Entertainment Tonight” the teen has “a lot going on.” I should say so! All our good thoughts on with her. Get well soon, Paris!

If you’ve ever been depressed or if you’re currently depressed or are wondering if you’re possibly depressed, walk — no run! — to the blog Hyperbole & A Half, where blogger Allie deftly, and sometimes hilariously, chronicles what it’s like to live with depression. In a new entry, posted today, Allie explains how depression can at first make you feel powerful in its detachment, and then slowly make it difficult to even approximate human emotions.

I could no longer rely on genuine emotion to generate facial expressions, and when you have to spend every social interaction consciously manipulating your face into shapes that are only approximately the right ones, alienating people is inevitable. Keep reading »
