Buzz Aldrin's Depression

  1. 1. Buzz Aldrin Wuz Depressed Here<br />
  2. 2. Bounce Back Program<br />This program is about a famous person who faced a hardship. Then we have to explain how they bounced back. I chose Buzz Aldrin because he was a very popular astronaut who went to the moon. He was a perfect pick because most people know of him and alcoholism was another interesting topic to study .<br />
  3. 3. He may have been your hero but he actually was depressed, After returning from the moon he was not prepared for the publicity. This led to him divorcing and drinking lots of alcohol leading to of course depression. Read this bigraphy for more info<br />Buzz Aldrin<br />
  4. 4. Biography<br />Buzz Aldrin When home from his major space trip suffered major depression and alcoholism after not being able face publicity, a film director wanted him to star in a movie but they were drunk before he could sign it. The next day they arranged a follow up meeting at a bar at 12PM Buzz got there but the others got there at 5PM by then buzz was drunk and needed to get his life sorted. Buzz divorced his wife and mucked up his life more, he then met Beverly. Buzz would stay at home drinking when he ran out of food he would go over to KFC and get 3 huge buckets of chicken. His fiancé Beverly was sick of it and told buzz to get rid of the alcohol he said no so she did it for him, Beverly got more and more annoyed and threatened to end the relationship Buzz begged for another chance and he went to Beverly's apartment so she could look after him that night Buzz finished a whole bottle of whiskey. A few days later Buzz went to alcohol rehab for 28 days under the care of Dr. Max Schneider he got out of rehab and is now much happier. <br />Brodie Made This Copyright.<br />
  5. 5. Wait<br />I made the biography but got recourses from this<br />http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/31491377/<br />
  6. 6. Bounce Back Acronym<br />How does Buzz fit into the acronym.<br />Other people can help if you talk to them. Get a reality check. Buzz fits into this by asking his girlfriend to help him then taking himself to rehab. <br />Bad times don’t last. Things always get better. Stay optimistic. Buzz fits into this acronym by helping himself get better after facing a hardship. Concentrate on the positives (no matter how small) and use laughter. Buzz fits into this by going to rehab by himself but he didn’t look at the positives before this (naughty Naughty) <br />
  7. 7. How Buzz bounced back <br />Buzz bounced back by taking himself to rehab. In rehab the doctors restrict you from having the item you are addicted to and teach how to live without them. For example someone I know hurt herself and broke something after being in hospital she had to go to rehab to recover from this incident and learn how to walk again. Here is an answer on does alcoholism treatment workAlcoholism treatment is effective in many cases. Studies show that a minority of alcoholics remain sober one year after treatment, while others have periods of sobriety alternating with relapses. Still others are unable to stop drinking for any length of time. Treatment outcomes for alcoholism compare favourably with outcomes for many other chronic medical conditions. The longer one abstains from alcohol, the more likely one is to remain sober. (See also Alcohol Alert No. 17 Treatment Outcome Research.)<br />It is important to remember that many people relapse once or several times before achieving long-term sobriety. Relapses are common and do not mean that a person has failed or cannot eventually recover from alcoholism. If a relapse occurs, it is important to try to stop drinking again and to get whatever help is needed to abstain from alcohol. (SeeQuestion 12.) Ongoing support from family members and others can be important in recovery. http://alcoholism.about.com/cs/about/f/faq6.htm<br />
  8. 8. So alcoholism treatment does work but you may have relapses that’s interesting. Buzz certainly still chose the right choice. I also heard some rehabs even try hypnosis.<br />Thankyou for reading. By Brodie Henderson<br />
