Most of the duration of my PD, 15 years worth i have had the same roommate. I would like to feel strong enough to live alone again but along with having PD I also have Dystonia muscle spasms throughout my body. My Dystonia attacks scare me. I think a big source of my stress is my roommate ........... which means more Dystonia and PD issues. My roommate says that he wants to move out alot but never does.......which is an upsetting yo-yo effect. How do know if I am able to live alone still or if it is just too unsafe since my Dystonia attacks render me needing assistance, usually in the middle of the night. I think the stress causes more attacks but other things like missing a pill dosage in the middle of the night can set them off too.
I would still have outside help during the day. It is the night -time that worries me. I am afraid i will have an attack and be alone and unable to help myself get thru it. The spasms have gotten pretty bad but i notice the happier i am the less attacks i have. So do i cut the strings on this dysfunctional security blanket that smothers me sometimes or is it best to just leave things as is? I want to live alone........... I think I would be happier but is it safe? Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Love to all,
