I have a friend I've known for 32 years now. Several friends and myself have clearly noticed drastic change in her behavior/personal hygiene, poor balance, tremors and more. We have on several occasions very delicately mind you (I have MS myself) tried to speak with her and talk her into checking into medical insurance. She lives with a very aging father and herself. Nothing but sitting on her couch and watching sports is the extent of her day. This is soooo not Becky. In highschool, she was beautiful, extremely athletic.....EXTREMELY! and was impeccably groomed. Suddenly, over the last 3 or 4 years we see this very drastic change in her and want to help. Do you suppose this is in anyway reflective of Parkinson's? Any Ideas on how to achieve getting her the help she obviously needs? When she drinks, her hand is VERY shaky. Becki has never been into drugs or alcohol so we know this is not the case. Her mother passed a few years back......Perhaps post traumatic stress syndrome? Any advise would be helpful, we just want our 'old Becki' back!!!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
