Good Evening All
As a youngster (43 is I think) I want to get in touch with people my age and find out how they cope with Parkinsons. I have been looking online for groups but with no luck. I was wondering if anyone can help.
I find it difficult speaking to older people as my life is different to theirs in a lot of ways. Young (yes I am I tell myself), have a 3 year old (pull my hair out sometimes, but love her to bits), work full time (what a fool I hear you say), doing an AAT course in accountancy (hasn't she got enough on her plate). Life sometimes gets to much and I feel I take it out on my husband (a lot), even though he is my rock and we have been through an awful lot together, (ie losing my mum, my dad abandoning me and my brother, being diagnosed etc).
I just want someone of a similar age that I can moan/talk to. Was looking for a chat group or something similar. Any help would be most appreciated.
It's not till I suddenly stop all my chores that I remember I have Parkinsons and then I fear what the future holds. The tremble in my hand has a impact on using a fork/keyboard, I don't want sympathy just want to live as normal a life as possible. I was given one piece of information from a friend who is suffering from MS and that is live for now, do it now and don't wait. Bless her we have been friends since she was first diagnosed to, nearly 20 years ago.
Going now, gone on enough
