Laughing Doctor

My story goes back decades. However only in 2017 did doctors figure out I had P.D. Third visit to MDS Neurologist looking fresh out of school. Early in visit 3 she started laughing and said "I figured out what is wrong with you." Giggling still she said "You have Parkinson's disease." Nearly shouting it out.

She wanted me to go out and get a cane that day, and, start using it... I had no walking issue at that time and sought another opinion. Sadly, I got the second opinion. P.D. at 59. I'm now 62, and that cane is calling me. Thank you.
