There are so many questions that mill around in your head when you or a loved one is diagnosed with PD, but how on earth does one decipher which questions to seek answers to first. My wonderful Dad started slowing down in March 2013 (my dad has always been a slow walker and quiet speaker) but come April he was shuffling along and seemed vague, I thought that he may have a brain tumour because he has previously had Cancer. By June, dad could not walk with the aid of a walking frame, even with this he takes forever to get anywhere and now his feet stick to the floor and walking is impossible.
Mum is Dad's main carer, I am their chauffer, representative at appointments, shopper etc etc etc.. you get the picture. However, I have a brother and sister who do nothing to help and the pressure is building up. I have so far managed to keep up beat and not freak out, but today has been the hardest and I am fighting to keep the tears at bay. All the questions that I knew I wanted answers to have now gone out of my head, we are seeing the Parkinson's nurse finally in a couple of weeks and my mind is now completely numb.
Can anyone please advise what questions should I ask, I am so scared that I am going to lose it in front of the nurse and upsetting my Dad by him seeing me upset.
Thank you and God bless
