I'd just like to introduce myself to the Forum ...
My father was diagnosed with Parkinson's in September 2015.
Having sourced literature from Parkinson's UK - I cannot thank them enough for all the information they forwarded to us - I thought it would be a good idea to join the Forum so that I can glean information and understanding, perhaps speak with carers or other people dealing with Parkinson's.
It's a difficult time right now for my family as we're all learning to adjust. It's also a slightly worrying time as I am noticing that my father seems to be in denial about certain things which is difficult to address as he has bouts of aggression - I've no idea if this is related to his Parkinson's or because he feels questioned by those near to him. For the moment, we're all adjusting and we're all learning.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and make myself known to everyone.
