Hi I am new to the forum. Am 53 and was diagnosed two and a half years ago. Fortunately for me the condition is not too bad with a little stiffness in my left hand and leg. I am still working but obviously worried about what the future holds, but have a wonderful supportive family.

Hi. I am 54, today actually. I was diagnosed about 2_3 years ago. I have struggled with depression and was initially told I had progressive supra nuclear palsy. However that has not been confirmed. I'm a former headmaster but haven't been able to work. The mental issues have been tough. I'm also raising twin 16year old daughters. The changes have been hard for them as well. Good to know there is support.

Welcome to both of you, John and Pat!

I'm a 67-year-old woman who has been enjoying all the delights of this disease for 16 years now. The miracle is that with the right combination of meds and plenty of exercise, I am still able to live the life I always did prior to dx. So keep your spirits up. For most of us pd moves very slowly. And when you're having a "down" time, you will always find others in this forum who understand and are really knowledgeable. Best of luck!
