Phone call

George was talking on the phone today to an old friend who has Parkinson's. Neither of them made much sense. His friend asked to speak to me and said 'George can't speak properly'

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

It is interesting as George does not really realise that he is any different and thinks that he can manage things well. Like Mum he was not diagnosed in the early stages so never really understood about any of it. His friend by way of contrast was diagnosed early on with Parkinson's and is well aware that it will get worse and is obviously quite depressed. Another part of this will be the friend's wife just treats him as she always has and does not admit that anything is wrong with him which makes it more difficult for him. George on the other hand is included and feels quite normal.
