I just want some people's experience with it and how they deal with it .
My children's Great Uncle has it.
My Aunt had it for 30 years, and if she had taken better care of herself, she would probably still be around. She smoked until she died.
What was it like for them? What affects them most? Or did ?

It affected my Aunt's mobility. People tend to fare better than she did when she got it. She died about 10 years ago, but got it in the 70's.
My children's Great Uncle has had it for about 15 years now.
It has affected his mobility severely, he has mood swings, vision and hearing issues.
I know he has other issues also but he doesn't like to talk about them openly.
He is suffering and will until he passes.
He is on a shit ton of medication and experimental treatments just so he can handle the everyday pain.
