Hi I am new to this so bear with me. My husband is 75 is suffering with psp, he was diagnosed in November 15 but I think he has had it a couple of years before that but nobody new the problem, it was a gradual thing. What an awful disease it is, I am trying to cope but feel so helpless for him.His walking is very poor we have just recieved a wheelchair which is a big help, he,s not dependent on it yet. He is still eating well and not incontinent. I know that things will progress and am scared for him.I am 73 this year and have good family round me, I hope I can keep well for him. I am getting tired I haven't had a break since before he was diagnosed,although they are organising a sitter so I can get a break. We have been married 52 years in July never thought we would finish up this way.His speech is poor and I am hard of hearing which doesn't help if he falls in the night. Any tips anyone can give me would be most welcome.
