Hello readers, I'm 56 and had a Parkinsons diagnosis 4 years ago. Like so many of you I knew something wasn't quite right and full praise goes to my GP for insisting I go to get checked out by Neurology.. I am pain free, if a little stiff in the morning and my main annoyances are a tremor in my right hand, and some issues with walking properly.
I am a gay single man with little / no family left and live alone. Whilst I am a positive person and, even though I say it myself, coping remarkably well under the circumstances, it is a daunting existence that lies ahead, and it would be nice to make contact with others, especially other gay men with PD, who will perhaps have to battle with similiar issues as me. Please feel free to contribute on this thread or message me directly.
With kind regards
