Michael J. Fox has experienced many mental and physical setbacks in recent years, in addition to symptoms of Parkinson’s disease that he has been battling for over thirty years. The actor does not want to talk about the depression, but he says in an interview with a trade magazine diverse He was close to her.
The 61-year-old Canadian has broken his shoulder, elbow and hand in recent years and almost lost a finger as a result of the injury. “And that sucks,” he says. In addition, his mother and father-in-law died in recent years, and he also had to put down his beloved dog Gus.
Medical losses and complaints created a “similar void” that he also experienced when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991. At the time, he tried to shake off his troubles, but today Fox has been sober for more than thirty years. He acknowledges that the Back to the Future actor’s life hasn’t been made any easier due to the worsening symptoms of the disease.
“I have helpers around me in case I fall, and it’s hard to deal with that lack of privacy,” says Fox. “I lost my family, my dog, my freedom, and my health. I’m reluctant to use the term depression because I’m not certified to diagnose myself, but all the signs were there. But my family pulled me out.”
