As a newly diagnosed, 37 year old PwP, I'm at a point where no one else notices just yet, so I'm using this opportunity to learn what I can and plan a new route for my life. I'm assuming I'll have no more than 2 years of use with all limbs- to surf/box etc, so I'm doing those while I can and doing the adventure holidays now -not later.
Anyway, my point is that I attempt to learn as much as I can about this dreadful disease, there are constant references to palliative services and gruelling side-effects to the meds- all of which has forced me to balance the pros and cons of seeing this disease through to it's end. So naturally, I'm wondering if at some point before I need to go on meds, should I take matters into my own hands??
Please don't think of this as an irrational or sensationalist question, I'm simply being completely practical as I don't want my parents and family being put through the undue misery of seeing me decline from a busy fit 37 year old, to a an elderly and infirm man within 5 years.
Surely Parkinson's patients, if not more than others, have considered this route? I'm not trying to drag the mood down or be sensationalist in this thread, I'm just asking a simple question.
