    Joyce, in addition to finding a support group, you may want to consider seeing a psychologist who specializes in movement disorders. You don’t say if you are on any medications to reduce your symptoms. If you are not, then you need to speak to your neurologist or movement disorders specialist and make sure that they understand that you are afraid to be seen in public because of your symptoms. There are many different treatments for PD symptoms that can give you some relief. Also consider exercise as a treatment because it does help both mentally and physically. You can find articles about exercise for PD on our website.

    That is terrible, Joyce. I am so sorry. You deserve better! Your family does not understand. Please reach out to nearest PD support group. I’ll be thinking of you.
