I am in my 50's and was diagnosed with PD a year ago.
At the time of diagnosis I was made redundant, but found another job.
In August of this year I was made redundant again suddenly when the business folded overnight with my employer doing a runner.
The day after I met my new Partner and he is wonderful.
before the PD i had several (7 or 8) operations for Malignant melanoma, with secondaries in internal organs , and I know that I am lucky to be here.
Mostly I am well balanced and happy, but occasionally I get obsessive thoughts and become over anxious about nothing in particular.When this happened the first time I was sending 30 - 40 texts to Michael all saying the same. This was identified as a side effect of the medication and I am now on levadopa.
I do feel much better but I have noticed that my personality is not as it was and I do worry more than I used to.
I am now at home full time and enjoying doing things that I have never had time for such as baking, days out, and i am making and altering clothes.So, I am not bored at all, in fact I am loving my life at the moment.
The thing Is though, I beat myself up for the way I go on and on about things at times, and then my partner gets cross with me and stays away , that makes me worse as I then worry about losing him, i dont sleep and become even more anxious and ...well, you can imagine!
Has anybody else had experienced of this? what do I do?
This man is loving and caring and I really do not want to lose him,but I am scared that I may drive him away.
Parkinsons is in many ways worse than the cancer, I always knew I could beat that, this is new territiry for me.
