Really struggling with hubby

I could have been reading a description of my life although I am retired and children grown up now.This is also very isolating especially during these times.
Over the past 8 weeks I have been in extreme pain both shoulders and arms totally bound although now seeing a physio…
I too feel like his mother / servant rather than his wife but advice is always around what he can do to improve things.In truth they are telling me what I can do and I truthfully just can’t do anymore…My husband is clearly depressed and has been for many years since his diagnosis 10 years ago.Around other people including professionals he blatantly lies about what he does eg I do the garden…probably 10 mins once in a blue moon.Hope things improve for both of us

Hi @Mo5 and welcome to the forums. I’m sorry to hear about you and your husband’s difficult time. I’m sure there will be other forum members who will be able to share their own experiences around the physical and emotional challenges that come with Parkinson’s, and how they manage to get through the hard times.

You can also contact our > Helpline and Local Adviser Service 1 on 0808 800 0303 or email: [email protected] where we have specialist nurse advisers who will be able to discuss your concerns, and our helpline and local advisers can also link you in to support in your area.
