Hi, I was diagnosed 2 and a half years ago but had symptoms long before that without realising. I had left it that late to seek help I couldn’t write, no sense of smell,terrible balance and dragging my foot. I shook all over and my anxiety was through the roof. I have been on sinamet and sinamet slow release very successfully. Most of my symptoms are now moderately controlled but my biggest problems are depression, night mares, still got balance problems, still no smell and leg jerks.
I am desperately trying to find a partner, I have been single for many years but now feel lonely and would love to meet my soul mate. Can anybody tell me if you think I am being stupid trying to start a relationship with a degenerative illness. I don’t know how long the Sinamet will work for. I also have to have a stick to walk with and I can’t wear heels any more. I look after my appearance and some days quite cheerful,
