    Sharon Osbourne shared how her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s battle against Parkinson’s disease has affected her since their family revealed his diagnosis two years ago.

    The 69-year-old talked about it with broadcaster Jeremy Paxman on his ITV documentary Paxman: Putting Up With Parkinson’s. She shared, “I just think of my husband, who was very energetic, loved to go out for walks, did a two-hour show on stage every night, running around like a crazy man. Suddenly, your life just stops—life as you knew it.”

    Sharon added, “When I look at my husband, my heart breaks for him. I’m sad for myself to see him that way, but what he goes through is worse. When I look at him and he doesn’t know I’m looking at him, I’m like crying.”

    Ozzy’s diagnosis was hard on everybody but according to the former Talk host, there was one positive side to it. She said, “The family. We spend so much more time together.”

    Ozzy, his wife, and their children Kelly, 37, and Jack, 36, appeared on Good Morning America in January 2020 to talk about his recent battle with Parkinson’s. The Black Sabbath singer revealed, “It’s been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”

    He also shared then that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. It’s a disorder in the nervous system that affects one’s movement.

    That time, Sharon explained, “It’s PRKN2,” and clarified that his illness is “not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination.”

    She continued, “It’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

    On June 13, Ozzy underwent a major surgery. Sharon shared on her Instagram Story on June 14, “Our family would like to express so much gratitude for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery! Ozzy is doing well and on the road to recovery! Your love means the world to him.” 

    Ozzy himself also shared an update about his health journey. He told The Observer on August 28, “You think you’re lifting your feet, but your foot doesn’t move. I feel like I’m walking around in lead boots.”

    The musician also revealed that his illness has affected his mental health, too. He said, “I reached a plateau that was lower than I wanted it to be. Nothing really felt great. Nothing. So I went on these antidepressants, and they work OK.”

    However, he revealed that he earned “to live in the moment” because of his illness, adding, “You don’t know when you’re gonna wake up and you ain’t gonna be able to get out of bed. But you just don’t think about it.”
