knew how hard it is on the kids. so, i got my tubes tied before i
got married. my husband wouldn't want kids anyway. he's not a kid
lover. plus my older sister has a daughter and his older brother
has 2 sons. my younger sister was supposed to be tested for hd but
her doctor never showed up.i get social security. my father died in
a nursing home, he got to where he couldn' t eat at all and he got
down to 90 pounds. he looked like an anorexic person. when he went
in the nursing home he weighed 235 pounds. he was over 6 foot tall.
he died of pnuemonia. my mother told me you don't actually die of
the disease usually you die of starvation, choking , or pnuemonia.
i mostly drop things. am losing control of my hands and arms. i spil
l things about 3 times a day. also it bothers me when no one can
understand me when i talk. i get frustrated when my symptoms get
worse. when my father was in his late stage he would sit in his room
and watch his tv as loud as it would go, my mother had to cook his
3 meals before noon. she also had to bake him a batch of cookies
every day. he strangled my mother several times and she had to push
him down to make him quit. before he was like that he wonderful
father who tried to teach me to play tennis and always let me stay
up late with him to watch horror movies on tv. i used to love
sitting in his lap.
