Amid her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s battle with Parkinson’s, Sharon Osbourne expresses her “heart breaks” for him.

In a poignant speech, Sharon Osbourne described how her life has changed after her husband Ozzy Osbourne received a Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis in 2020. Discover the cause of her “heart breaking” for the rockstar.

 

Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon Osbourne is being open about his health struggles.

 

The 69-year-old former Talk show host discussed the impact the rocker’s Parkinson’s disease has had on her life since the family made his diagnosis public in January 2020.

 

For the ITV documentary Paxman: Putting Up With Parkinson’s, she said, “I just think of my husband, who was very lively, loved to go for walks, gave a two-hour show on stage every night, racing about like a mad man.”

 

“All of a sudden, your life as you know it ends.”

 

She said, “My husband breaks my heart every time I see him. Although seeing him in that state makes me sad for myself, what he goes through is worse. I feel like crying when I look at him and he isn’t aware of it.”

 

Ozzy’s diagnosis has been difficult, but according to Sharon, there has been one upside. She said, “The family.” “We are together so much more now.”

 

Kelly, 37, and Jack, 36, together with Ozzy’s wife and other family members, made an appearance on Good Morning America in January 2020 to talk about his recent health struggles.

 

“It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” the Black Sabbath singer, 73, explained of the past year, during which he was diagnosed with pneumonia in February 2019 and suffered a fall in his Los Angeles home two months later. “On New Year’s Eve, I performed my final gig at The Forum. Then I took a nasty tumble. My neck needed to be operated on, which damaged all of my nerves.”

 

Ozzy revealed his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, a condition of the neurological system that impairs movement, at that point.

 

At the time, Sharon identified the condition as PRKN2, saying that it “is not by any stretch of the imagination a death sentence.”

 

It’s like you have a good day, a nice day, and then a really awful day, she added.

 

Ozzy recently provided an update on his challenging medical path after receiving his diagnosis.

 

“Even if you think you’re elevating your feet, nothing happens to your foot. I feel like I’m walking around in lead boots,” he told The Observer Aug. 28, adding that Parkinson’s had also taken a toll on his mental health. “I reached a plateau that wasn’t as high as I had hoped. Not much felt really good. Nothing. I started using these antidepressants, and they are effective.”

 

Ozzy claimed that despite his health issues, he has discovered how to “live in the moment.”

 

You never know when you’re going to wake up and be unable to get out of bed, he continued. But you simply don’t give it any thought.
