Hi everyone just introducing myself.

I’ve been trying to read through this forum and I’m finding it quite hard,first of all how to put my name in a post so you no who I am.I’m sure things will click in my head soon or later.I might sound a bit of a dodo, but I ashore you I’m really chatty.Had Parkinson’s twenty years now,I was told when I was in early thirties. I used to be able to talk about it but it got to much for me,I had a terrible breakdown and had to leave,some people can be very nasty to others,it hurts so bad,in the end I was placed in mental health all because of the breakdown.Im fine now thank goodness,apart from the pd of course.Im coming out of my bungalow now just to the shops near by and drs surgery,I’m so happy I’ve got an electric scooter,there marvellous.Anyway I would love to chat and make some friends,learn things too. X.
