The pain behind Robin Williams' punchlines

Robin Williams spent decades battling addiction to cocaine and alcohol. Williams would sometimes turn his inner battles into the punchlines of his jokes. As brash and funny as his admissions sometimes seemed, they clearly did not tell the full story of his struggles. Wolf Blitzer takes a closer look.

There are plenty of Americans who are struggling with similar issues. Wolf discussed treatment options with Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Disqualified Paralympian: They are penalizing me for having hope

American swimmer and 2012 Paralympic medal-winner Victoria Arlen spoke out about a ruling that barred her from competing at the World Championships this past August in Montreal. The International Paralympic Committee ruled the young athlete ineligible because she "failed to provide conclusive evidence of a permanent eligible impairment."

Arlen said the committee penalized her for having hope, "which is very sad, because without hope I wouldn't be here today."
