Re: Historical Figures with Problems


Winston Churchill was severely depressed throughout most of his adult life. He self-medicated with alcohol, which peobably exacerbated the problem.

Vivien Leigh had several mental and physical break-downs during her life, was confined to a hospital for long portions of her adult-hood, and died from recurring tuberculosis at 53.

Abbie Hoffman had severe bipolar disorder, which I imagined influenced his suicide.

Re: Historical Figures with Problems


Theodore Roosevelt was unhealthy, asthmatic and considered as a weakling as a kid but decided, at some point, to adopt a variety of vigorous activities in order to build his health.
