LBDA comments on Robin Williams.

It seems so long ago that we saw changes in Mom that were concerning enough to seek a diagnosis and help from her doctor. But in thinking back prior to when we realized this was more than just “normal aging” there were small signs that could easily be justified away…and were. Symptoms fluctuate in the beginning which I believe must make it more confusing for that person. I also think it’s human nature to preserve our dignity and not admit there is a problem. (That is why I believe the stigma attached to dementia needs to end. It is a terminal illness.) There came a day that Mom broke down and admitted that she just couldn’t take pretending anymore. It was taking too much energy. According to her specialist in the field of LBD it is not uncommon for someone who is very social and good at reading people via expression or body language to hide their symptoms by using all of the skills they have to do it. Mom was a master. That is, until it became too much. No one knows what was going on inside the mind of Robin Williams. Personally, I believe it possibly could have played a part in his decision to end his life…but we will never know. Regardless, it is a very sad loss. He was a truly talented actor and gave us so many wonderful movies to warm our hearts and make us smile.
Rest in Peace Robin Williams

I wish I had come across these products before Mom’s vision deteriorated to the point these activities would be too difficult for her. Such a fanatic idea with so many benefits. Check out the website at https://www.rostherapysystems.com/
