Debbie’s Story

Hi my name is Debbie I’m 64 years old married and have a daughter 28 years old and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s a little over two years ago. I have been on many different Meds and have had bad reactions and side effects from them. I was first diagnosed with MS but after further testing, I was told I had Parkinson’s. It was a severe blow but it is what it is. I tend to get extremely frustrated and angry because even the simple things I can either not do as I had before or not do it still at all. I am new to this site I hope to learn from each of you how you deal with life and setbacks.
