Robin Williams Had Parkinson’s Disease, Wife Says
I’ve been through severe clinical depression myself, so was horrified that Robin couldn’t imagine the light at the end of the tunnel like I could, but his decision makes a lot more sense to me knowing he knew he was going to lose his mind.
LOS ANGELES — Robin Williams was in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease and was sober at the time of his apparent suicide, his wife said Thursday.
In a statement, Susan Schneider said that Williams, 63, was struggling with depression, anxiety and the Parkinson’s diagnosis when he was found dead earlier this week. Authorities said the actor-comedian’s death was suicide.
