Recently diagnosed with Parkinsons' this Blog is about my personal experience with getting a diagnosis, dealing with the diagnosis and what has helped me. It is hoped that by sharing my experiences, I can encourage others to take the step to seek a diagnosis and to find a way to 'live well' with a path we did not choose, but that we must walk. I call it "Parkies" because it makes it sound a little less serious and maybe even a bit "friendly" for if I cannot avoid the association I can perhaps find a way to walk with it.
I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
