Hi guys, sad to see so many people on this forum, meaning so many more people out there who are suffering from PSP, but at the same time comforting to know we can talk to each other. Been meaning to check this forum out for over a year, when my dad was first diagnosed from parkinson plus to PSP, but honestly been so busy all the time. Funny thing is that I was the one who realised this isn't normal parkinsons, the doctors and nurses were just saying looks like its advanced parkinson, one of them was saying it seems like MSA, but i decided to get a second opinion from another neurologist and found out it was PSP. My dads condition started about 5 years ago when he all of a sudden couldn't walk and was running down the aisle in Tesco. My dad is at the stage where he's wanting to nutri bullet all his food. His balance in now none existent, anyway I could go on but just wanted to introduce myself and my dad. I am 27 and my dads main carer and my younger brother who is 19 takes over when I need to leave the house. Real depressing times nowadays. Staying home for so long has made me so brain dead. I do work one day a week though, but I can't even structure what I am writing. Praying for all you guys who are a victim of this horrible condition and for all you carers and family members.
