My partner was diagnosed with spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 just over a year ago.He is in denial and continues to work full time. I also work full time but don't let him do much around the house as I try to avoid him hurting himself or falling.The only things I am struggling with at the moment is if we go out in the car he refuses to get out if someone has parked his side so he gets out before I park and I have to reverse out and keep traffic waiting while he gets back in to some people's annoyance.Also getting on and off a flight is a nightmare.He hates crowds and becomes stressed if being rushed.Are we eligible for a blue badge? Any advice on these issues would be appreciated.
