I was recently diagnosed with PD (3 weeks after my 50th birthday- lovely belated present!) and I am slowly coming to terms with what this means to me. This site has been so useful in answering some of my many questions and fears! I am taking one day at a time and trying to remain positive. I have had 3 very stressful years with my personal life and have reached the point that things can't get any worse now! I am lucky as I have a lovely PD nurse who makes me feel good about myself, answers all my questions and nothing is too much trouble for her. I am also lucky that my symptoms are mild at the moment so I am able to keep working and driving (informed DVLA and have a 3 year licence now). This is my first time posting on a forum.
Hope you are all keeping well.
