In June of 2020, I walked into my neurologist office, sat down and was told your brain is not functioning correctly. I asked what that means. I was told it was Parkinson's and that I was going to be put on carbidopa levodopa 4 times a day, not told what it was or how it works. Then I was told no climbing stairs and no driving.

Uninformed about Parkinson's disease

Scared of the diagnosis, I didn't know what to say or ask. I felt like something was not right. And today I'm looking on the internet for answers to my questions. I hope someone will be able to guide me in what to expect now.
