(FOX NEWS) - Robin Williams' widow says his medical afflictions would have claimed his life within three years -- "hard years" -- and that she doesn't blame him for his suicide.
Susan Williams said the actor-comedian had not only been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, a progressive movement disorder, a few months before his death, but also that a coroner's report found signs of Lewy body dementia, a difficult-to-diagnose condition that leads to a decline in thinking and reasoning abilities.
That may have contributed to the anxiety and depression for which he was treated in his last months, and that likely played a role in his August 2014 suicide by hanging.
Though there were many reasons why he ended his life, she said, it may have all come down to one: "I think he was just saying, 'No.' And I don't blame him one bit."
