A few hours ago, I lost my lovely Dad aged 93yrs. He was the kindest, caring, gentle man that anyone could wish to meet. He didn't have Parkinson's, but I do. When I was diagnosed just over 3yrs. ago, I decide NOT to tell him about my condition and managed to keep it a secret all this time. Other family members knew, but my poor Dad would have been so upset to find out. Everyone said I should tell him, but it just seemed too cruel. He lived alone in Goathland, near Whitby and I travelled to see him every week, until my driving licence was wrongly taken away from me by the DVLA, (I now have it back for 3yrs.). As a result I was unable to visit him as regularly as before, when he needed me most. I implore all people with Parkinson's, to make sure that their condition and conversations with their neurologist and PD nurse, are recorded correctly. Mine weren't, hence the loss of my driving licence. It is imperative that we are listened to properly during appointments and get a professional, accurate report, without opinions and implications. Otherwise, all confidence and trust are lost.
