Hi
I’m 65 and I am an alcoholic - whoops - sorry - wrong problem - but that’s what it sometimes seems like when I tell people that I have PD. It’s like admitting to something that is somehow your own fault. I’m now in my 24th year post-PD diagnosis and although life is getting more difficult and restricted, I soldier on. It is important to keep busy - and to have targets - in 2018, I published a book (“The Alternative Christmas Letters”) through Amazon which has little to do Christmas and is only partly about my PD.

So keep smiling and always remember: the only time that you will be free of your PD is when you are dead - and with death as the alternative then living with PD doesn’t seem so bad.
