I was also diagnosed only a week ago, but I suspected it was PD once the tremor started. I feel like I’ve accepted it, however I do have moments where pure fear takes over. I believe this is normal and as long as the positivity remains I believe I will win this battle.
I’ve joined a gym, vigorous exercise is important. I am also going to attend a local group session I found about on here. As I always like a challenge I aim to run (or walk) a charity 10k in the next year, this way I have something to focus on and I raise money for PD research.
I didn’t catch your age, but I assume you are a ‘young’ one like me as I’m 47. Like you the first person I worried about was my OH, my wife didn’t sign up for this when she said I do… but guess what she has been a rock, very supportive and positive.
I’m here anytime you want to bounce thoughts, concerns or even jokes.
