My husband aged 62 has recently gone into a care home as I could not cope with hinm at home anymore. He was diagnosed with Parkinsons in 2010 and Alzheimers Disease in early 2011. I am still looking for someone whose Partner/OH/family member/friend is living with the double diagnosis of Alzheimers Disease and Parkinsons. In particular anyone who was diagnosed with these dreadful illnesses under the age of 60. I also post on the Parkinsons Forum but still cannot find anyone else in the same position. I think it would be such a relief to find someone else in this position who understands the symptons each disease presents with. I think the thought of the dark/winter nights are making me melancholy. I am 62 myself and life doesn't seem to hold much to look forward to anymore. I have never been one to show my feelings but these days I seem to cry at anything, in fact I am crying writing this!!! I am so grateful for all of you wonderful people on TP as I know someone always read what you write and if they can help they reply, which I find a great support at times like this. Never thought it would be me but who does?
