I thought I was handling things pretty well but today I lost it. My husband was diagnosed with PSP last month although it was hardly a surprise. He is still mobile with the help of a walker but has become totally useless as far as contributing to our relationship and household. I have been tasked with shutting down his legal practice and it's overwhelming. I also care for my 93 year old mom with Altzheimers. She often spend her day close to tears but can't explain how she is 'sick". But once we get her some Adivan she starts to surface.
Today I lost it when on top of everything (not all being listed here) I find my husband is being sued for malpractice. He doesn't even know about it and is unlikely to care. I'm at my wit's end. I don't know how I can deal with more stress.
I'm also wondering when this disease might have begun. Most of his career he was the most ethical and careful attorney you could imagine. This is the second law suit (that I'm aware of). I'd been critical of his business decisions for the last 5 years and some of this may go back even farther. Does anyone really know how long this desease incubates prior to diagnosis?
