The missing piece to the Robin Williams puzzle has surfaced at last. His suicide inspired many discussions of why a person SO fortunate in SO many ways would entertain the notion of suicide. Depression can be treated. Substance abuse can be treated. And he had a loving family to support him throughout. But Parkinson’s Disease cannot be cured. And it can be more devastating than Alzheimer’s. Robin’s wife just mentioned the Parkinsons diagnosis today, and didn’t think it had any effect on Robin’s death. She was wrong. It’s an awful degenerative disease that destroys quality of life. Combine that diagnosis with Robin’s other problems and you’ve got the answer. So sad.
