Found out yesterday


#1
I'm just recovering from a Stem Cell Transplant because I have CLL
cancer, and yesterday I found out that I have Parkinsons. Dam, It is hard keeping up a good attitude. I guess there is a lot to learn about how to deal with this. I guess I'm still in shock.

Hi Choco :grin: Welcome to the forum. Sorry about your news :frowning: You certainly do have a lot to take on board, but as Radz has already said you'll find a sympathetic and often informative ear here. PD has no boundaries so neither do we. It's been 4yrs since my dx and I'm still doing relatively well! I only started medication just over 12 months ago (my choice) I guess you may visit the site at strange times but as many of us are 'creatures of the night' you will usually find someone logged in. Good luck to you and I hope we speak again soon :sunglasses:
