Need to talk..

Hi @Paddi,

I read your post and the thread after. I’m so sorry. I hope you’re still coping. I’m a carer for two members of my family with Parkinson’s and my father has done exactly the same to me as your husband. I dread the day my husband gets that bad, which he will. I can only say that after 6 years of being a carer, distancing myself is the only things that has worked. I’m very active on social media and friends I’ve made on there have helped enormously. Making boundaries and saying “No, I won’t do that.” has also helped - although at first there was a lot of bite-back from the people I was saying no to. I’ve gradually regained some of myself and I’m coping a lot better. I wish you all the best on this dreadful journey.
