If I am,I was found to be suffering from parkinsons about 5 years ago,I am informed by my nurse that I have a very slow progression.Medication is helping and I have slowed down a little but can cope with most things on a day to day basis. Jumpy.

Jumpy,
You seem to be doing it right. Welcome to the forum. There are loads of people here who are sharing the Parkinson's journey. I was dx 8 years ago and have also benefited from slow progression.
I hope you will find the same support in this forum as I have done

Welcome, Jumpy! I agree with ali j on exercise. It's crucial to feeling good as well as to slowing PD's symptoms. I'm 67, have had this malady 15 years, but am still leading an active life.
Best wishes to you.
