LBD is hell. My mother, Joyce, was misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009. Several months later she was admitted to a mental hospital. She was accused of faking her symptoms, being addicted to pain pills, badgered by medical personnel and others for being able to walk to the cafeteria to eat one day, unable to do so the next. She told me “I know something is wrong, but I’m not crazy like the people in here”. She was right.
She suffered. A correct diagnosis earlier could have prevented some of the suffering.
