Doreen's Parkinson's Story
I knew nothing about PD and after the first Dr. diagnosed me, I was terrified to contemplate the future horrors. However, with support groups, the internet and local resources and an amazing local Neurology/Movement Disorder Specialist and her team, I'm doing well mentally and physically. Also, my fear and lack of knowledge made me deny that I had PD and not take the Carbidopa-Levodopa for way too many years. The Day--yes, the Day!--I started taking these meds I felt profound relief. Now, I can write and type again. And drive. And exercise. And eat in public. And walk fast. Things are not perfect but much much better. My motto is to embrace PD not to avoid it.
