Before my husband was diagnosed with PSP last year, the family noticed a gradual unexplained decline in him. In some diseases, diagnosis can lead to a cure but we all know that this is not the case with PSP, we are told the condition can only be "managed". The day to day reality of this is that our carers roll can become a heavy burden, oh there is lots of "help" out there, but once you've filled in one form, you've filled them all in and in the end you give up and get on with it.
However, what I would love to know is, can anti-depressants really help - either my husband or myself, who prescribes them? because the quality of both our lives are going down rapidly.
