Sharon Osbourne Says Her "Heart Breaks" for Husband Ozzy Osbourne Amid Parkinson's Battle

Sharon Osbourne is getting candid about husband Ozzy Osbourne's health struggles.
The former talk host, 69, shared how the rocker's Parkinson's disease has affected her since the family announced his diagnosis in January 2020.
"I just think of my husband who was very energetic, liked to go for walks, did a two hour show on stage every night and ran around like a maniac," she told broadcaster Jeremy Paxman for his ITV documentary Paxman: Enduring Parkinson's. "Suddenly your life stops - life as you knew it."

Sharon added: "Looking at my husband breaks my heart for him. I'm sad to see him like this, but what he's going through is worse. When I look at him and he doesn't know it's me. "When I look at him, I cry."
Though Ozzy's diagnosis was rough, Sharon says there was a bright side to everything. "The family," she remarked. "We're spending so much more time together."

In January 2020, Ozzy — along with his wife and two of their children, Kelly, 37, and Jack, 36 — appeared on Good Morning America to talk about his recent health struggles.
"It's been a terrible challenge for all of us," the 73-year-old Black Sabbath singer said of the past year, which has seen him diagnosed with pneumonia in February 2019 and suffering a fall at his home in Los Angeles two months later . “I did my last show on New Year's Eve at the Forum. Then I fell badly. I had to have an operation on my neck, which got on my nerves.”

"It's PRKN2," Sharon explained at the time, adding that his illness was "by no means a death sentence."
She continued, "It's like having a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day."
Ozzy recently gave an update on how his difficult health journey has gone in the years since his diagnosis.

"You think you're lifting your feet, but your foot doesn't move. I feel like I'm walking around in lead boots," he told The Observer on August 28, adding that Parkinson's has also taken its mental toll on health. “I reached a plateau that was lower than I wanted. Nothing really felt good. Nothing. So I took these antidepressants and they work well.”
However, Ozzy said that his health conditions have taught him to "live in the moment."
"You don't know when you're going to wake up and you won't be able to get out of bed," he added. "But you just don't think about it."
