How do you cope?
Hi, I'm new to the forum and hope I can get some help/advice from those who may be in the same situation as me. My husband was diagnosed with PD 2yrs ago at the age of 34, having possibly shown signs 3 or 4 years prior. Unfortunately, we've been told he has the most agressive form and in those 2yrs have seen him go from a well built man, running his own business to someone who's almost house bound and unable to work due to the severity of his symptoms. He's come to the end of his med options and we're waiting for surgery. I work, full time to help keep the family afloat (we have two kids) and I am completely drained, emotionally and physically. I am finding really difficult to cope with the changes in his personality. I can't do anything right. Am I just turning this into something about me? Am I being selfish? Either way, I don't think i'm coping very well and any tips on how to do this better would be greatly appreciated.

Reason: My original post was too emotionally charged.
