A handsome actor from the TV show “Prison Break” – Wentworth Miller has recently pretty much gained weight and become the object ridicule online. One of the popular sites insulted him, comparing a photo of him when he was lean and muscular with a current photograph, which shows him as being overweight.
When you break out of prison and find out about McDonald’s monopoly…
The photo quickly got to Wentworth. He felt extremely sad and decided to comment on this on his Facebook page.
Today I found myself the subject of an Internet meme. Not for the first time. This one, however, stands out from the rest.
In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a low-profile for a number of reasons. First and foremost, I was suicidal. This is a subject I’ve since written about, spoken about, shared about. But at the time I suffered in silence. As so many do. The extent of my struggle known to very, very few.
Ashamed and in pain, I considered myself damaged goods. And the voices in my head urged me down the path to self-destruction. Not for the first time.
