Please could anyone tell me how to deal with someone who is in total denial. Says he only falls when I am around, even thought people tell me when he is out and about they see him falling all the time. He tells me he needs no help from me. I am at my wits end, his speech is practically gone, his eyes are closing he gets botox but it is becoming less effective.He is becoming a danger to himself when he is out because he tries to cross roads and may freeze on the middle of the road. Will not go to the crossings where it is safe. I know his strong will is keeping him going, but I find it very hard when I do a lot for him and he says he does not need my help. It is such a hard disease to deal with. We have not had one conversation about his disease. He hates visit to his neurologist because the doctor questions him on his falls he denies that he falls a lot even though that morning he may have fallen about 5 times. I feel so sorry for him but I may have to continue down this road with his denial.
