I am wondering what the age of your husband is. My wife seems to have trouble walking with an unsure pace as if she is having trouble seeing. She seems to be unsure of herself and like she might fall.
She also has a trembling of her hands up near her chest almost like in a praying position, cupped and close together. she will begin to sob and maybe even cry a little....she seems to be afraid of something she doesn't want to happen. She will do this everytime her Sister comes over to visit her. They were never close. By the way, she is 61 years old....too old to be worrying about falling I would think.
My wife has almost no cognitive abilities left....I must help her do almost everything. Lately I feel like I should feed her but still want her to function somewhat by herself.
She is tethered to me like a scared dog. . . she never was like that.
I guess I am her security blanket.
I know something about Parkinson's because I lost my Sister who suffered with the disease for 15 years. There was good and bad medication the doctor's would give he. The bad would cause hallucinations but relieve her of her tremors....most all meds have some side effects. If a person can't take the side effect, he shoud quit the medication....you have to weigh the pros and cons.
I look for signs of decline all the time. I am afraid she is going much faster as she goes along....now in her sixth year. It scares me.
I struggle with what I know what I must do.......put her in a Nursing Home.
