Good evening all.
I haven't posted on here for nearly 18 months now and when I did I was looking for help dealing with depression, insomnia, anxiety, the usual side effects that come with having Parkinsons. Well fast forward 18 months to the present and you'll find a completely different man. I got help for all the aforementioned issues and started to get myself back on track, then in July last year I started to run. I am now halfway through training for my first marathon having completed several half marathons along the way. I feel more like the person I was years before being diagnosed and my whole wellbeing has improved and I now have a 'can-do' attitude towards life rather than the I can't do anything feelings from before.
Why am I telling you alll this? Because if I can go from the depths of depression and thoughts of suicide to a soon to be marathon runner so can anybody. Stay positive and as I always say 'I may have Parkinson's but it will never have me'
