Parkinson’s Fears

The original article on the list of fears sounds almost exactly like my story. I can relate to all of it except I don’t have young children or a job.

I am severely depressed and suffer with apathy and pain. I’m 77 and pretty much stuck in my room. I still drive but I’m afraid I might hurt someone. I’ve had several bad falls so I am afraid of falling. I don’t want to fear. I hang tightly on to Jesus. My faith keeps me going. I’m trying to live one day at a time and find the good and joyful in this day. How has everyone else dealt with all these fears?

    Have you tried meditation? CBT?

    I do okay for the most part but when I start thinking about the future I get very stressed. I had a 3 month stay in a hospital 2 years ago and was delusional most of the time because they screwed up my meds. Ever since then I’ve been afraid of the future. The problem is i have to make plans. Sometime I just hate this disease!

    You are certainly not alone in those fears @diane56, especially because of what you’ve experienced. Do you have anyone you can talk to about how you’re feeling? April – Team
