Hello to all. I am male 60 living in the nw England been dx three years now marked tremor to left side spreading to both legs and sometimes both arms. this is the first forum that i have been on so not sure of correct etiquette. so if i make a mistake i apologise in advance. lucky for me i married a wife that was a career by and had worked with some one with pd and got involved with local branch.so was helpful as we where not strangers. so that's me if i missed anything about myself that anybody would like to know just reply to this post and i will try to oblige.

Greetings from rainy Oxfordshire, although originally from Kent.

I am also new to the forum although diagnosed for 7 years (when I was 45). Trying to remain positive but the toe clawing and cramps do get rather depressing.

Never mind, the football season is up and running again so I can vent my spleen each week and get rid of some of my frustrations!

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Turnip

Whilst I do like Oxfordshire, my heart and soul remain in Kent and I am hoping to retire there eventually. Seems a long way off at the moment.

Hello pbpj,

Welcome to the forum, as you can see already there are plenty of people who can offer any help and tips on living with PD.
Hope to hear from you again soon and that the doctor's app went well.
best wishes

Hi - at 55, just diagnosed yesterday and can’t believe it - the anger/denial - until I have a scan part of me is hanging onto the hope that it’s not true - told my children and family but cant tell anyone else - until show symptons want to try and lead as normal life as possible. I bet everyone says that!! After 12 years being a single mum to 3 children (20 and twins 16) - I found the man of my dreams......how do I tell him we’ve only being seeing each other for 7 months...I also work 1 day week and applying for FT jobs - do I give up? ...that’s all for now Thank you for reading this ramble!
