I am new to this web site but i have a father who has been diagnosed with this nasty disease since Sept 2011. Before then they had diagnosed him with Parkinsons.
I just want to say for anyone that is going through what myself and my dad are going through i really feel for you.Dad can no longer walk, he wets the bed, his voice is very quiet and can bearly eat anything.
His vison is pretty much gone everything is blury and his eyes want to close all the time. He is in a very sad place at the moment and just recently tryed to cut himself in the stomach with glass.
He get s a very bad pain in his head and it just makes him want to lash out and hurt others. We constanlty cry for him and he just wants it all to end. We have had to put him in care as i work full time and have a family to raise, and it was one of the hardest things i have had to do. I just hope when the time comes for dad he goes peacefully and with no pain. I do not want my dad to die but i hate seeing him this way where he has no life and is just existing.
Thanks for letting me get a few things of my mind today as i find it hard to talk openly to others.
