Shocking news about the beloved passed actor Robin Williams have been made public by his wife Susan Schneider after William’s autopsy results came in. It seems like his unusual behavior that he showed in the last months before he decided to take his own life were a result of a horrible brain-eating disease and not just a simple depression.
Susan Shneider blames the illness known as Lewy body disease for the tragic suicide of the actor in 2014: “We had unknowingly been battling a deadly disease,” revealed Schneider, who only found out about the depression-stoking condition after an autopsy was performed. Williams had “one of the worst cases medical professionals have ever seen,” said Susan. “Yet throughout all of this, his heart remained strong.”
Although the tragic loss of the beloved actor was covered intensely in 2014, no one really knew about the disease he had been battling until that moment. Just recently was a coroner able to point out the real cause of the tragedy and the results were shared with the public in the form of an essay written by Schneider for the American Academy of Neurology: “Once the coroner’s report was reviewed, a doctor was able to point out to me that there was a high concentration of Lewy bodies within the amygdale. This likely caused the acute paranoia and out-of-character emotional responses he was having. How I wish he could have known why he was struggling, that it was not a weakness in his heart, spirit, or character.
Robin was losing his mind and he was aware of it,” she painfully pointed out. “Can you imagine the pain he felt as he experienced himself disintegrating? And not from something he would ever know the name of, or understand? Neither he, nor anyone could stop it — no amount of intelligence or love could hold it back.”
