    I've heard about people sometimes getting more emotional after strokes. Did he fully recover?

    No, he lived with half his body paralyzed for 16 years. But he did gain more control over his emotions, never 100% though. His ability to think didn't change, nor his personality.

    If you have a chance and if you haven't already done so, check out this book...

    My stroke of insight.
    A brain scientists personal journey.

    About a brain scientist who studied the brain and strokes then had one. She knew it immediately as it happened and she describes the occurrence and recovery in great detail. The brain is so amazing in its ability to do work arounds.

    Yea, sometimes I think that my brain did a workaround by tying itself into my ass. LOL.

    Just like I mentioned earlier with my husband. As mild-mannered as Clark Kent until he had his stroke, and now he flips out if dinner is at 630 instead of 600. It's not all the time, though. He just has his phases where he gets pissed about, like, everything, and then he levels off. Then pissed. Then not.

    Have y'all noticed that?

    Re: Robin Williams committed suicude.

    According to a statement released by Robin William's widow, William's sobriety was in check. He was also battling the early stages of Parkinson's.

    Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly. It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid….

    Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child -- Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid. Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.

    Just saw that myself. ne w light on the subject. Still sad, very sad. To face possible Parkinson's I imagine is hard to deal with even without depression to go along.
