Re: It's getting tough--Parkinson's spouse
I have been feeling so alone, and I googled "Parkinson's Spouse" and your post came up. I'm sitting crying as I watch my previously strong husband getting weaker and weaker. I need a support group/forum or something. This is the hardest thing I've ever gone through in my life and I don't think people could possibly understand it unless they've gone through it.
My mom got cancer when I was 11 and died a few years later. That was horrible, but I only knew her 'healthy' for 11 years, so as awful as that was--this is worse.
I don't mean to be such a downer, but I am glad to know there are people out there who know what this is like.
By the way--my husband's PD and heart disease came from exposure to Agent Orange in Viet Nam. We've known something was wrong for the past 6+ years, but he was only diagnosed recently--so this is rather new to me. Thank you.
