Biggest Challenge: Parkinson’s
Response from DM:
Whether you are inquiring about Parkinson's for yourself or for a loved one, it is always best to research what the National Parkinson Foundation (http://www.parkinson.org/) has available. The challenges that you are, and will be, facing are many. Each individual needs to keep up his or her daily routine as much as possible and continue to keep a social life going to the best of his or her ability. Trying to keep a balance in one’s life needs to become a priority. Without balance in all aspects of life, it is too easy to give into the disability and get discouraged.
Also, my experience has shown me that getting involved with a local branch of the Parkinson Foundation can help one remain informed. People will have various, unique approaches to living with this disease. Learn what is working for others. Also, remember that ongoing research gives us hope that we will develop better ways to control the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, or even find a cure. Make sure to consult with your primary doctor who can refer you to a neurologist for more specialized care. There is not just one answer; each person must find what works best for him or her. I wish you well on your personal journey.
