New to the forum, I am a retired man of 76 years, the last nine of those coping with Parkinson’s among other conditions. So far, my symptoms are mild to moderate. I have medicated myself with mucuna pruriens for the last several years, never having taken any other drugs, such as Sinemet. Mucuna works well.
Fortunately my son lives with me and looks after me, but I try to maintain my self-reliance. I keep busy with writing, graphic art, and exercise. And I often escape through video games. I go to bed each night thankful for having mostly enjoyed life for another day and I get up in the morning hoping for a reasonably good day. At my age I consider myself lucky to see another sunrise.
I joined the UK Forum to get less commercialized information about the disease, more reliable news about the search for a cure, and to share personal experiences with PD. I have enjoyed reading your entries, finding them informative and moving. I wish you all well and hope to communicate with you.
All the best–
