Hi,

I love your picture of typical Venice, I have never visited but looks my kind of place.

Can I ask if you watch and enjoy 'The Big Bang Theory' ?

Do you have any trips planned for 2018....... ?

All best wishes,

Patrick.

Lovely photo. I have been to Venice but never noticed that beautiful building. Or if I did I sadly just walked on. Maybe thinking next time? There never was a next time though! A lesson there for all of us?

Sorry you have been told now that you have PSP. However you have come to the right place as people here are so kind. We have all gone through it as carers and there are a few people who are sufferers from PSP or CBD. MSA patients find this a good site too because we are an active site.

I am glad you can still work from home. I am in awe that your area of expertise is quantum physics! Keep up the good work as long as you can.

Hi jmoffat!

My wife suffers from PSP. The first specific symptoms show up in March 2012: difficulty speaking as if she had a stone in her mouth and a slight tremor in the ring finger. The definitive diagnosis was done in June 2015 (after problems in eye movements were detected, which was the specific symptom that was added to the difficulty in speech and walking instability confirmed the PSP diagnosis).

I have a summary of our experiences, problems and solutions regarding PSP.

If you are interested let me know.

Hug and courage.

Luis

Hi there Luis - I must admit that I too am very keen on reading your paper on PSP - I received my diagnosis of PSP in August 2015 and I must admit I fulfil all the criteria... but I am always learning more things about it the more I read about it.........in fact my whole day and everyday seems to revolve around PSP!!!! Funny that HEY!!!!!!???????????cheers Bindi
