For the first time in more than a year, widow of actor Robin Williams is speaking publicly about the circumstances that preceded Mr. Williamss death, and sharing details about the disease he had when he die. In interviews with People magazine and with ABC News, widow, Susan Schneider Williams, lay blame for her husband's suicide in 2014 not on depression but on diffuse Lewy Body Dementia. It was not depression that killed Robin, Mrs. Williams said in a People magazine interview. Depression was one of let call it 50 symptoms and it was a small one. She add: This was a very unique case and I pray to God that it will shed some light on Lewy bodies for millions of people and their loved ones who are suffering with it. Because we didnt know. He did know. Parts of the interview with Mrs. Williams were shown Tuesday on ABC ' Good Morning America, with further segments scheduled for that evening on the networks ' World News Tonight and Nightline programs, and Friday on Its Morning talk show View. Mr. Williams, stand - up comic and star of Mork & Mindy, Good Morning, Vietnam, Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society, killed himself on Aug. 11, 2014, in the home he shared with Mrs. Williams in Tiburon, Calif. He was 63. A statement issued that day by his press representatives said the actor had been battling severe depression of late. Mrs. Williams said in a statement three days later that her husband was struggling with his own battles of depression, anxiety, as well as the early stages of Parkinsons disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly. But report from the coroner of Marin County, Calif., Release that fall, said that Mr. Williams had diffuse Lewy Body Dementia. That disease is frequently confused with Parkinsons because of their overlapping symptoms. It was like playing Whac - aMole. Which symptom is it this month? I thought, Is my husband a hypochondriac? Were chasing it and there were no answers. By now, we have tried everything. Some 1. 3 million Americans have Lewy Body Dementia and its symptoms are harder to live with each day, especially for relatively young people like Mr. Williams. Disorder is often mistaken for Alzheimers disease, or Parkinsons disease: there is Alzheimers - like slippage in memory and thinking, as well as stiffness and movement problems seen in Parkinsons. Similarities in three disorders are extensive enough that it often takes more than a year and multiple visits to specialists to get an accurate diagnosis. It took almost three years for the US, said Norma Loeb, board member of the Lewy Body Dementia Association, whose mother, Lillian, died of the disorder in September. I had to go online and research it myself; that is the norm. By that time, more distinctive signs of Dementia are usually establish, including chronic sleep problems; fluctuations in thinking, in which mental acuity come and go; and visual hallucinations, often of animals, children, or miniature people.
