Thank you for responding to my introduction. It's taken a while for me to get back on the forum, I guess it's facing up to things when I log into the website and since I joined months ago there's always been something else I must do.
It did make me happy to read your view and I have, since my first post, told my children in a very matter of fact way, so as not to alarm them. They seem to have excepted it and are carrying on as normal, but I talk about it openly now and don't hide away my tablets. My teen daughter worries but it's difficult for her at the moment anyway (hormones and stuff!) we support each other..I am her counsellor, bank, taxi, stylist, chef, cleaner (my husband has to be mentioned too in at least 3 of these jobs)... and she helps me when I'm tired! Seriously though it is much better now, but I would be interested to know if you have found any reading material with information for children which is more about younger onset Parkinson's?
I'm thinking maybe I would like to be more involved with money raising activities, when something is happening around this area, I think this might introduce my children to people in similar circumstances.
