Like my profile says, I'm 40 and living in Sweden (although I' originally from Liverpool). I have 3 kids, the youngest of whom is 8. I was diagnosed a year ago. The impact on my life is difficult for me to guage. The meds keep me reasonably symptom free but this does change from day to day. Actually, since my physical symptoms have subsided I have noticed that my mood is very flat, and I seem to be rather apathetic - although it's hard to be sure that's directly down to PD.
I'm coping ok and am well supported but I'm reluctantly having to reassess my attitude to work, which I always threw myself into, but am now struggling to do. I'm really looking for ways to contribute to the Parkinson's community. I blog on Medium which feels good but I am looking for other ways to help. Any ideas?
