Hello, this is my first ever forum post anywhere on the internet......
My husband was diagnosed recently with Parkinsons at the age of 50, his osteopath just referred him to his GP thinking he had might need some minor surgery on his shoulder! Well you can imagine the shock we had :( By next week he will be on 2 lots of tablets. He keeps fit by doing karate and walking the dog.
We have not told our 7yr old son and trying to keep life as normal as possible. I am the one who is struggling with the diagnosis and been put on betablockers but know everyone has to be strong.
Can anyone tell me if they have been to local support groups and are they worthwhile [hubby won't go but I would].
I sound really miserable writing this, but am hoping our life will settle back to some normality once medication is working, any advice is very welcome.
