Just wondered if anyone had any advice? My Mum was diagnosed with Parkinsons about 11 years ago. Initially, I accepted it, but as the years have passed and her symptoms have got worse, I think I have slipped back into denial. When I am with her, I do my best to be supportive - not rushing her, helping with practical stuff etc but I really struggle when she gets emotional. I don't know what to say or do, and its made me feel like the absolute worse daughter and (I'm really ashamed to say this), sometimes I find reasons why not to see her because I struggle so much to see her struggle. Has anyone else found this, and how do I get strong enough to stop being selfish and put Mum first?
