Robin Williams & LBD

One of the sadder aspects of dementia is that it can lead to suicide.

My mother tried to leave her assisted living residence and "get hit by a truck" with her walker.

It's not surprising that Lewy Body Dementia was probably a factor in Robin Williams taking his own life.


With a healthy frontal cortex, people would have more chance of getting help rather than letting the illness and impulses of a moment end their lives.

Thank you to Juanita Wright Potter for alerting me to this post on Salon.com.
