Kelly Osbourne has spoken up about her father Ozzy’s Parkinson’s diagnosis.
The 35-year-old appeared on Good Morning America (GMA) on Tuesday to discuss the health difficulties afflicting the rock singer with her father, mother Sharon, and brother Jack.
After a significant fall in his toilet in 2019, the “Shut Up” singer voiced worry during the interview that the Black Sabbath musician would never be able to walk again. “Watching someone that you love suffer,” Ms. Osborne said, was the worst part of his illness.
When Kelly said, “There are days when I come into this house and I’m like, “There is absolutely nothing wrong with him,” you think, “Oh my god he’s going to be fine, we are going to be leaving for tour next month,” Kelly said. Kelly remarked, “It’s extremely bizarre how this works; I saw it firsthand.
He seems to be unable to get up off the couch and looks to be losing sensation in his arm, but nothing has altered when you return the following day.
Having to watch someone you care about suffer is the hardest thing.
Kelly went on to describe how her father’s Parkinson’s condition led to a change in the way their family was structured.
People must be warned to “snap out of it. She said, “Come on, let’s all see what’s going on here so we can get past this.”
Additionally, it took some time to get everyone on the same page.
However, she asserted that the family has now come together as a result of the diagnosis, saying: “We’ve all learned a lot about one another again, and it’s been confirmed how much we cherish and support one another.
At this time last year, we didn’t sure if dad would ever walk again.
In a recent interview with GMA, Ozzy said that he is presently on a “host of medications.” He also acknowledged his relief at being able to discuss his illness.
It’s challenging to hide things because you never feel comfortable. You are unhappy. I’m not very good at keeping things a secret. It is too heavy for me to carry around anymore. It appears that I have run out of excuses,” he continued.
The speaker added, “I feel better now that I’ve admitted I have Parkinson’s.”
The NHS describes Parkinson’s disease as a condition in which parts of the brain gradually degenerate over a protracted period of time.
Parkinson’s disease is characterized by sluggish movement, stiff, inflexible muscles, and uncontrollable shaking of certain body parts. A person with Parkinson’s disease, however, may also experience a wide range of additional physical and mental symptoms, such as worry and despair, balance problems, and memory problems.
Kelly claimed earlier this month that she was “sick” of hearing about her father’s health in the news and refuted claims that he was passing away.
She wrote, “Today I had a lovely start to 2020,” in her Instagram story.
I ate lunch at a restaurant with my family. I then smiled and spent the rest of the day with my dad. I receive horrific news about my father, who is apparently close to death, as I make my way home.
“The media sometimes makes me feel sick,” she concluded.
It’s no secret that my father has had health issues this year, but this is total nonsense.
