My husband (Gerry) was misdiagnosed in Jan 07 with Parkinson's and in March of 08 was diagnosed with PSP. He has been in a care home since this past June. He always was a wheeler dealer kind of a guy and he likes to keep his mind busy with "deals". Lately he has wanted to buy the wheelchairs of people whom have passed away in the home. Last week he wanted to buy an old Handy Dart Bus, yesterday he informed me that he is going sell one kidney. I know it won't happen but I don't know if I should tell him it's part of his disease that's making him think thes things or to just let him believe it's going to happen. He is still quite alert and knows what's going on. He truly believes all these things are normal and viable. It wears on me because he gets mad that I won't give him the money (that we don't have) for these ridiculous requests. I would be very grateful for suggestions on the matter.
