Robin Williams’ Widow Susan Schneider Williams Pens Heartbreaking Essay About His Final Months

It has been two years since Robin Williams died, and his widow, Susan Schneider Williams, continues to work to spread awareness of the brain disease that led to his suicide, Lewy Body Disease.

In a heartbreaking essay titled “The Terrorist Inside My Husband’s Brain,” Susan writes about her late husband’s final few months and how the disease that he didn’t know he had consumed his life. Sharing that Robin’s many symptoms didn’t fit any one diagnosis, Susan explains that he had to deal with not only physical limitations such as heartburn and poor sense of smell but also mental incapacitation.

“By wintertime, problems with paranoia, delusions and looping, insomnia, memory, and high cortisol levels—just to name a few—were settling in hard,” she writes. “Psychotherapy and other medical help was becoming a constant in trying to manage and solve these seemingly disparate conditions.”
