Judging by the name you picked, you are maintaining a positive attitude regarding your diagnosis. And I think that's half the battle!
I was diagnosed in 2002 but had symptoms for five years before that. My case is exceptionally slow-moving, so I have not changed my lifestyle at all yet. I still hike, exercise at a gym, play the piano, attend social events, etc. (I am 68, by the way.) Since 2012 I have been a widow but am carrying on, as one must.
I hope you enjoy the forum. During my participation here, I've learned a great deal about PD and its medications.
Best wishes, J
