Hi I recognise what you are saying, as my husband who has had PD 11years, struggles in family situations now, especially as his speaking voice is so quiet and has to almost shout to be heard. However, I feel that is how he is towards me. It seems as if what is going on for him is all he can cope with and doesn’t hold onto anything I may say is happening for me. He does try and he was a quiet, shy person before, but one of the things I feel annoyed about is when someone is speaking to him he does not look at them when he replies, or even when they are speaking to him!! I find it rude and say that to him. As one of the other respondents said, it is a messy, complicated business and there is nothing that it doesn’t affect. I still struggle massively in coping with living with aPWP.
