Robin Williams' Parkinson's Diagnosis Is Being Linked To His Suicide, But Get The Sad Truth Here

| Filed under: Sad SadRobin WilliamsHealth

robin williams parkinsons disease diagnosis depression suicide cause reason

Robin Williams' suicide left fans around the world scrambling for answers: why would such a kind-hearted, good-humored man choose this?

When the news of his Parkinson's diagnosis broke, many thought they had found the answer. But that's only part of the story.

According to those closest to him, the new disease and accompanying trials did impact Robin, "exacerbating" his fragile mental state.

And the medications he was taking to treat the Parkinson's kept him down a bit more than usual.

But sadly, sources close to the family want to point out that the Good Will Hunting star had been suffering from depression for years.

Those close to Robin do not believe Parkinson's was the cause of his suicide. This was a bump on a very long, very hard road.

So hard to hear.

If you're suffering from depression, please seek help. We know it seems like nothing out there can help, because feeling that way is one of the symptoms. But there is help out there.

    The only "treatment" available is being drugged up to your eyeballs on a cocktail of placebos, then fobbed off with six weeks of "cognitive behavioural therapy", which is horseshit.
    CBT's main purpose is to force the brain, by bullying it with incorrect "I'm okay/I'll be alright/there's nothing to worry about" statements, into ignoring responses coming from traumatization. It's like being willfully ignorant and pretending your mental illness(es) doesn't/don't exist. How's that "help"?
    When you attempt pushing symptoms away, the brain reacts, using it's natural defense mechanism, by bringing it back because it interprets, possibly in error, that you're in danger and need to protect yourself. CBT has a HUGE fail rate because of this, and of course - if you could be willfully ignorant, you wouldn't be psychologically sick! The "chemical imbalance" claim is only more horseshit that quacks spout to make pharmaceutical companies rich by selling pills with horrible side-effects and can exacerbate symptoms. Notice how they easily dispense them? Because they earn a commission (read: profit off of your pain and suffering)! I'd rather commit suicide than become a catatonic doped zombie, and I've had severe refractory chronic depression all my life.

    the elephant in the room. the wife that didnt even check on her husband when she left in morning…..kind of like when gary coleman"FELL" down the stairs and his low iq wife was afraid to touch him…he died. Mr. williams killed himself but his wife has some culpability in this .so sad.makes for staying single…

    Nice job pretending there is actually any insightful "sad truth" involved in this piece. Same news repackaged as cheap clickbait.

    Re: zeitgeist – I thought the same thing! Why didn't his wife check on him… especially if he was in the condition that he was in?!
