I guess no one has been diagnosed with this but can anyone tell me (the only thing I have to go on is what they tell me from research on the internet, which can take you into 20 different directions) what are the differences between Parkinsons and this version (shay drager) if you happen to know! I am so lost and I so want to help him through this, I can see him sometimes just staring off into space and then other times he is right there, if that makes any sense. Which I think is such a hard thing to watch, the person that was your rock for so many years now is in need and I want to help I just dont know how. I dont know what he wants for help, how much should I do for him, how long do you wait for him to find a word to say, I have asked him does it bother you if I finish your sentences or is it harder for you to not be able to think of it (because sometimes he doesnt ever get the word out either) of course he is my dad and just looks at me and smiles. I dont know I was hoping someone would know something about it, or give me some insight or opinion.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
