My dad has had PSP for around 5 years and is now in a nursing home. Yesterday, when I went to visit him he had a choking fit after sipping his cup of tea. We are use to him choking and spraying everywhere, however, this choking fit was very different. I have never seen this look on his face before, it was a look of fear in his eyes, of pain and it was how he tensed his upper half of his body and how he stared at me. It was awful.
On his birthday 8/1/16 before we all gathered round him to celebrate his day he spoke to my brother and said "I feel like I'm coming towards the end of my life, look after your mother".
I'm not sure what the end involves with this disease. Do the choking fits become constant at the end?
