Welcome to the forum!!
Your friend is lucky to have you. You also seem well versed in the disease and can guide your friend along and be an understanding shoulder to cry on (does this make sense?
) What I mean to say is that you can provide both emotional and practical support for your friend.
Are you a full-time carer? How are you finding this? This is what I dread. I will be a carer for my mum but I have a rather weak character when it comes to relatives struck down with disease.
How is your friend handling it?
My mum is on Effexor to keep her calm but she has always been anxious so I cannot blame PD for this one
Best to get to a neuro or PD nurse and see what they suggest. Too often the non-motor characteristics of PD are ignored. Seems like it's a case of "Take your tablets and think to yourself that it could be worse!".
