I am feeling very sad after reading Satt post, brought back so many memories, good and bad, loss of empathy is one of the horrible things with PSP, I just want to scream, George seems like he does not care about anything. Our beautiful eldest dayghter is going through a terrible time, and our grandchildren, through no fault of their own, her husband cheated on her, and she is going through a divorce, George just doesn't seem to care, I feel like all the problems are on me, he takes no interest in anything. Oh there is one thing he says, as soon as we get in the car he says have you checked the oil, it does my brain in, feel like I am by myself sorting out, car insurance, house insurance, road tax, tax returns, odd jobs, leaking summer house roof, so many jobs, I have to worry about everything, oh how I hate this horrible illness. The end it all today George had to go to the hospital for his caterachs, only to be told he needs a scan and his diabetics checked, why oh why do we keeping going only to be told the same thing over and over again, this is the 4th time we have been told this, I told the doctor with this illness George has not a lot going for him, so he needs to be able to see. I said to her George has PSP have you heard of it, she said yes, I gave her a card from the PSP society, she briefly looked at it, she said that helps and went to give it back, I said no that's for you, she is going to write back to the doctor, let's see what happens, so fed up with fighting George's corner, they don't seem to care, looks like a visit to the doctors again with my boxing gloves on. Sorry for the moan, just feeling a bit down, had a really bad night last night, so tired but can't sleep. Yvonne xxxxx these are one of the reasons I keep going,
