My fiancé has just been told he has a 95% chance of having PD. We went to see the neurologist on Wednesday totally unaware of the potential diagnosis which was just tossed casually our way with no apologies or concern. R is just 45 and our lives have seemingly stopped. The future? Well it just isn't. Both of us are in very dark places right now. We have a two week holiday coming up which we should be looking forward to but instead we have to go carrying this dark passenger. How do we focus on the future when we cannot see one? I have read so many posts on here and everyone seems so accepting (and lovely) of their lot but I am assuming you too went through the emotional roller coaster? So many questions and sweet FA offered in the way of help and guidance from the neuro. R's main panic is driving and working. No driving means no job and we have no idea as to how quickly things will deteriorate.
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated as we are just drowning xx
