It was after she realized what she had allowed to happen to herself and to her family that Robin sunk into a deep depression.
"I looked back and I said, 'What happened to me?'" Robin says. "When the adrenaline left my body and I saw everything for the first time, I felt shame and embarrassment and overwhelming guilt for what I had done and had allowed to happen in my life and in the lives of people that I love. I became very sad. I mean, very, very sad to the point that I was immobilized. And I could not get out of bed for days at a time. I was diagnosed as clinically depressed. It took me a while to realize I was depressed and to get help and to get over the shame of what had just robbed me of so much time. I was unable to participate in life."
