My Dad lost his long hard battle against PSP on 13th February. He fought bravely for so long, I can't quite believe the struggle is finally over for him. We never had any help or assistance and we made the best of what we could and managed to adhere to his wishes to never be bedridden for as long as we could, all apart from the last six weeks once he suddenly stopped eating. Like so many wonderful people on this forum, I will remain a member in the hope that sometimes I can give a suggestion that might help someone. If anyone has any questions they would like to ask, I am open to answer whatever I can, either on here or privately. I know how alone you can feel and how helpless we feel as carers sometimes so if I can ease someone's mind for even a second with an answer, I will be happy to do so. Feel completely lost as caring has been my entire life for the last four years. I hope he is free of the anguish and suffering and is happily reunited with my Mum whom we lost to cancer in 2011. Thanks to everyone who posted here, the tips, the reassurance, the help and advice has been invaluable. I don't know if I would have made it through without you all. xxx
