Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon Osbourne was asked about the Black Sabbath legend being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in a new interview with Jeremy Paxman, who was diagnosed 18 months ago, in his ITV film “Paxman: Putting Up With Parkinson’s”.
She said, “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.”
“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, like, crying.’
She said about the upside of the disease, “The positive thing is we spend much more time together as a family and I love my husband more than I do three years ago.”
Ozzy is using cannabidiol, better known as CBD, a cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant that has no psychoactive effects, as Parkinson’s has given him nightmares. Sharon said, “[Ozzy] was always on something, he always loved to dabble with the old drugs. But now he takes this stuff at night. What’s this stuff that everybody smokes? Marijuana. It is something from that — cannabidiol.”
