The Black Sabbath singer gave an emotional interview along with his wife at Good Morning America on Tuesday. Sharon Osbourne told the host, “It’s Parkin 2. There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

Last February, Ozzy Osbourne experienced a bad fall and had to undergo surgery. During the interview, the 71-year-old explained the experience. He said, “When I had the fall it was pitch black, I went to the bathroom and I fell.”

Further adding, “I just fell and landed like a slam on the floor and I remember lying there thinking, ‘Well, you’ve done it now,’ really calm. Sharon called an ambulance. After that it was all downhill. It was the… worst, longest, most painful, miserable year of my life…”

He also stated, “It has been terribly challenging for us. I had to have surgery on my neck which screwed all my nerves. I found out that I have a mild form of Parkinson’s.”

The legendary singer also confessed that he was in a lot of pain during the entire year. Saying, “The pain is constant. The first six months I was in agony. I’d say, ‘Sharon – you’re not telling me the truth. I’m dying, aren’t I? I thought I’d got some terminal illness because the improvement was so slow.”

The Prince of Darkness also added, “I’m getting better, but after the surgery the nurses asked me on a scale of one to ten how much pain I was in, and I said, ’55!’ Six months of waking up and being unable to move is a miserable existence.”

The singer is now finally ready to be open about his health struggles. He said, “To hide something is hard – you never feel proper. You feel guilty. I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore. It’s like I’m running out of excuses. I feel better now that I have owned up to the fact that I have a case of Parkinson’s.”
