Why yes I did, thank you for the acknowledgement.

What I wonder is how long ago the diagnosis was and if this was the sole reason for his reported recent severe depression or if he was already in that and the diagnosis was just the straw that broke the camel's back for him.

According to what I have read he has a long history of depression.

To think that a jinglebell collar could have alerted someone that something was going on.

Yeah it sounds like he was on the edge anyway and this kind of diagnosis just launched him over the edge. I hope he got a second opinion. Didn't tony Scott's autopsy reveal that he didn't have the brain tumor he was dreading?

Michael J. Fox should have offered robin Williams a milkshake.

Why?

Because Michael J. Fox uses only the finest ingredients.

Without old, tired jokes Fark has nothing.

Meh. Michael J. Fox jokes don't faze me anymore. Not since having the misfortune to discover the Fifty Shades Generator (NSFW text).

I have a funny one too.  Why does Michael J. Fox shake so much?  Because he has Parkinson's disease and uncontrollable shaking is one of the many symptoms, it's very sad.   LOL

Michael J Fox didn't know Robin Williams had Parkinsons because they shook in unison.
 
2014-08-15 12:24:57 PM  
Pretty sure stunned != slapped in the face, concerned Farker from the other thread.
 
2014-08-15 12:25:14 PM  
The report that Robin Williams had recently been diagnosed with Partkinson's seems a bit shaky to me..
 
2014-08-15 12:26:43 PM  
The one good part in any of this is through his tragic ending, he has made more people think seriously about both Parkinsons and depression than the last three years of PSA s combined....

/saddest part of his legacy.

Don't get so shaken up over it, it's just a joke.

That's not just a first-class ticket. You get a private charter.

Constant tremors are a side effect of the medication he takes. Without it, he's a prisoner in a motionless body.

Don't see why anyone should complain about people making jokes at MJF's expense.  He tried to build a series around mostly Parkinson jokes, so I don't think he'd be too butt hurt by them.

Michael J. Fox and Robin Williams were supposed to do a Youtube collaboration for a Harlem Shake video.

Yes I know, just wanted to make an anti-joke.

Where this all comes together:  Awakenings is a FANTASTIC movie, easily one of his best.

Yep! Actually I can't think of any other ones, but I'm open to suggestions.

If they shook in unison, wouldn't Robin be the only person not blurry in Michael's vision?

I remember a while ago Fox was talking about Parkinson's on the Late Show with David Letterman, and he mentioned how the condition gradually decreases the brain's ability to produce dopamine. I'm guessing this can lead to certain depression.

Now now, lets not get technical.

He should have just used Spice.
