    Hi farmish,

    I'm so sorry to hear what you are going through. I wish I could give you a hug through the screen. Parkinson's disease is a very isolating disease, and those who are not suffering from it, simply do not understand your day-to-day struggles. My heart truly goes out to you.

    I think that you and your husband should have an open line of communication and expression of your emotions. There is so much that you, as the person with Parkinson's, and he, the person who is married to someone with Parkinson's, are going through. Yes, he might be lonely doing things alone, but there is still so much that you can experience with each other....even if it's from the comfort of your home/living space.

    Here are some links to information on WebMD that I think you will find useful.
