I haven’t really used the forum yet… my husband is 43 this year and was diagnosed at 39 years of age.
At the time I was carrying our second child and so the shock of the diagnosis and a new baby was beyond tough. He doesn’t talk about the condition very much, hasn’t seen a counsellor, won’t join any groups (which I do understand) and is too fatigued to exercise. I’m guilty of getting frustrated with him because we are different in that regard and I’m more of a fighter. His fatigue has also affected his anger with both me and our children (aged four and nine). He switches from anger to tears very easily - is this something that’s common? I struggle to talk to him as he feels that I have the issue with PD from wanting to chat about it - he simply says he’s getting on with things…More recently he has noticeable dyskinesia on his left side (the PD is on the right) since increasing his does of Levodopa.
Tips and advice really welcome. Thanks for having me.
