My name is Jamie and I am 48 years old.
So, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s on Monday, great!
I know I can call the help line but I can't talk to anyone right now as I am too emotional.
People say how I can treat this positively, that really isn't happening right now.
I am in the very early stages of this disease but my dopamine scan showed as abnormal which led to my diagnosis. I can’t help feeling so angry right now; I know this feeling will pass as I know I am a very rational person.
I find myself over thinking/analysing every movement I make now to see if I have the symptoms.
I guess I should count myself lucky as I have a partner who I can talk to, it could be worse, I could be on my own.
Basically what I am trying to say is….
