Robin Williams didn’t have to die!
That’s what pals are saying since his widow, Susan Schneider Williams, opened up about the comic’s tortured last days.
A heartbroken Susan revealed that — weeks before Robin committed suicide on Aug. 11, 2014 — a psychiatrist told the 63-year-old actor he should move into a mental health facility!
“Medical experts had already determined Robin could no longer take care of himself because he suffered from a dementia-like condition,” a friend told The National ENQUIRER. “Robin should have had someone looking after him at all times.
“There’s no reason he should have been by himself the day he took his own life!”
Dr. Gilda Carle, an psychotherapist who did not treat the star, agreed.
“Somebody should have been keeping an eye on Robin!” she said.
“He had already proved to be a danger to himself. Chances were high he would become a danger to himself again … or worse!”
In a recent interview, Susan said that on July 24, 2014, she was shocked to find Robin in the bathroom wth a gash on his head.
She screamed: “Robin, what happened?”
According to Susan, he motioned toward the door and said: “I miscalculated.”
Robin had been suffering from delusions, insomnia, anxiety and paranoia, among other problems, including spatial awareness and depth perception!
Susan recalled: “The psychiatrist said, ‘Now, Robin … this is now mandatory and we need to decide, you need to decide where you want to go, and we’re all going to figure this out.’”
She added: “We were very scared. We didn’t know what we were fighting.”
But Robin realized once he entered the facility, he would probably never leave.
Tragically, he killed himself before his medical team was able to properly diagnose his condition as Lewy body dementia.
The star had also already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
Said a pal: “They should have been watching him like a hawk! If they had, he’d still be alive today!”
