hopefully this is in the right place. Just been told by my mum that dad has Parkinson's, he's yet to have it confirmed officially, but he's been falling over a lot, depressed and just giving up on stuff.
I'm in bits, I have no idea what to do. I've watched them struggle the last few months, not knowing what caused his slow walking or falling over,
hes 78 and had. Stroke 14 years ago, so we were expecting something, but it all just seems so sudden. I just don't know what to say or do.
I'm the baby of the family and I was always expecting my sisters to cope with it. But ones doesn't keep in touch and the other, the one I thought was a rock, is suffering from stress and anxiety herself, so I can't tell her. I feel so alone, I need to be here for my mum and I will be, but at the same time I feel so selfish, I just wanna run away and hide.
I came on this website looking for answers, but I've just managed to scare myself. Help!
