Hi there ~ I’m Claire and my dad is the Parkinson’s sufferer; bit of a tale of woe because he was diagnosed with Giant Cell Arteritis a week after my parents’ Golden Wedding anniversary last June and lost sight in his left eye. He started to get shaky and had a repetitive bouts of a bad hallucination where he was fighting his way out from a dark house in a wood! We knew nothing about Parkinson’s and thought his symptoms were part of the Arteritis; trying to get a diagnosis was difficult till we went private and saw a neurologist who confirmed it was Parkinson’s, which had been fast-forwarded by the Arteritis. He’s bedridden and needs full nursing care so is moving to a nursing home in next few days. Just horrible to see how vile this disease is!!!
