Good evening everyone I am new to the PD forum but not new to PD. I am male (74 nearly 75 yrs of age NOT yrs old). Wrongly diagnosed in 2013 with "frontal temporal lobe dementia " it took utill 16/10/2014 for my Neurologist to put on paper. "Mr.++++++ does not have Dementia he has P D". This was not unexpected to me, as the symptoms had been there for some years ,but unknown to myself.
As the Butler in a Scotish Castle I was responsible for pouring the wine at social events. 2 year s before my retirement (aged 65) I asked my employer if he/she would pour the wine as I sometimes though I may spill (,or drop) the bottle.
My writing (for which I had won praise) was turning into scribble.
2 years after retirement I had an aortortic valve replacement. That was when the dreams and nightmares started.
But now I am here with you. My life is on the "up". I believe not only do I have PD on hold . I have it in regretion !!!!!! How have I got this far? Well like many other suffer with insomnia so will come back later.
