I have had parky pal for about 10yrs, just joined a gym and with a few grab rails put into the changing room going to try to swim every other day.
Now , when I was diagnosed did not want to talk about it, some people don’t. Thats their choice ? Maybe like me he was kinda ok about it , digesting it all, not wanting to chat about it at this time.
Your hubby may be right, your need to talk things over, may be your way of dealing with his diagnosis. If you reflect on your own thoughts, feelings and be honest with yourself, ask the question is it you that needs to talk?
Just for the time being look after you, get counselling if you want to talk, it may help.
Well back to hubby , he may be like me, I need to read information digest it make my own decisions, if too many people start telling me what I should be doing I turn into a ratty, stubborn old goat.
EVeryone has their own coping strategies , there is no one size that fits all.
I needed time to get to grips with it wanted to know people were there for me, one step at a time.
Keep up your normal routine , ask him how he wants to deal with it, respect his view. This may reduce the stress levels.
One step at a time… I still dont like the support groups but you cannot shut me up about parkinsons now.
Its a shock for both of you, I was 46 when diagnosed I understand.
