3 years after hubby's dx I have finally taken the plunge and joined.
He had symptoms since 2011 and doesn't respond well to new meds which has limited treatment options for him. Currently he is on 250mg of madopar 4x a day. Recently he has developed an exceptionally short temper, mostly with me but increasingly with our 6 and 7 year old children. His PD is compounded by spinal problems and I know it is frustrating for him the restrictions that these put on his life, but I'm finding it harder and harder to deal with the unpredictability of his mood. I daren't talk to him about it and he has refused support from the PD nurse so am stuck.
I guess that's the reason why I'm here, to have people to talk to and will understand.
