Hi I’m Sue and care for my husband who has PD, he was diagnosed some 11 years ago at the age of 45 with early onset PD, on the whole it didn’t impact on our lives until about 3 to 4 years ago we had tried to plan ahead we downsized to a smaller house with more or less no garden and everything was close at hand amenities wise as things were ticking along nicely, nobody warns you about the curved ball PD throws at you like the OCD especially the highly embarrassing sexual side, I love my husband very much and am trying so hard to help him deal with these issues it has caused but some days I don’t know if I am helping or hindering
I am sorry that you and your husband are experiencing some drifficulties in repect of OCD, here is a link to some information which may help https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/impulsive-and-compulsive-behaviours-parkinsons. However I would also suggest that you contact our helpline on 0808 800 0303 and speak to your Parkinson’s nurse.

Good Luck with that. I am in the process of divorce as my husband has turned into a cheat & a compulsive liar. Obsessed with pornography. Is on 3 different websites & at the moment has a Chinese girlfriend who he plans to move in the moment I move out. No remorse for upsetting our to daughters & grandchildren. I don’t recognise him anymore. We’ve been together 38 years. I blame the meds. No one listened to me & now my marriage is over.
