My mum was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) early February 2018. From 2015 she was falling and was complaining about her eyes being dry, couldn't move faster, and we have been going to the general physician since the past 12 years, but they didn't know what was wrong with her. She was always told it was old age and that was why she was falling. But it is sad now that there is no cure so we are just managing now. It is a bit hard for my dad to look after her but we are doing it.
