My partner was Diagnosed 2yrs ago with PD A few weeks ago (after I raised many concerns on his falls plus no seen improvement of the sinemet), he was given an MRI scan.We were told its looking like a Parkinson plus PSP! No information and they would see us in six months?
Not sure what he's got anymore.......no nurse to ask either.
Hiya,I'm Ali j just need to say HI
Hi,hellooooo anyone around,I'm Ali,lol I bet you guessed.i was told I had Parkinson's when I was just 31,nightmare.now I'm 48,big difference eh? I'm just plodding around with it, like a bin on my head full of rubbish.scramble,mushed up inside head of mine.see you around???
Aye aye Ali j
empty it out on me as I will turn your rubbish into production any time okay my friend on you go !!
Hi Ali j
Agreed, It's not easy having PD and I'm only a newcommer, Diagnosed last year and still finding it difficult to get my head around it all.. I know I look the same (mostly) but inside I feel very different and all I can do is accept the change - that's the difficult bit.
you will be just fine , it's a hard lump to swallow tto start with but you.are the boss as to how you get on with it all . It is life changing for us all but it is life I personally just try and stay happy and not listen to too much bull about it all . Only you really know how you feel and you go with what feels right . One bit of advice try to stay active without overdoing it good luck to you
Thanks. I'm sure you're right. I find the most difficult bit accepting my limitations and working round them. But the trick does seem to be doing as much as you reasonably can and not beating yourself up about what you can't do. Easier said than done when you've always been stubborn as a mule like me!
Aye aye daffy
am just the same as the worst boss we can have is ourselves ! But we're all adjusting I think , but not sure we will ever really get it right as we are all stubborn good to hear from you tooraloo for just now
