I was dx 4 years ago,I am also a carer for my husband who has had a stroke and heart surgery. I have been taking part in the "finding early markers" research project for over 2 years. I go to a Conductive Education 2 hr. exercise group for PD once a week. I find it much better than Ti Chi as I am very much looser after the class and find gardening easier afterwards. I am coping generally OK, providing I don't have to push my husband in the wheelchair often!! I do get rather tired at times and my sleep patterns are very erratic. Is there anyone out there with PD who is also a 24/7 carer?
