I very rarely come on the site as I don't have a lot of confidence. I do know that there are a number of people on the site who are well informed and are willing to share their story and give advice that I know is a lifeline to people, it certainly has been for me.
I have had pd probably 12 years now, dx 7 years, my symptoms started when I was about 43 years old. I was started on rasagiline, then added pramipexole and now take a low dose of madopar. I see a neurologist about twice a year, my GP less.
I do work hard at the physical side of my therapy. I have a fantastic physical therapist who I see weekly. I use a Galileo machine daily and I exercise most days (not a lot, just 15 - 20 mins).
I know my body and what it needs and I listen to it. What I find the hardest to live with is the anxiety. I am waiting to see if I am successful with a trial for people with pd and mindfulness. I feel this will help me to live in the moment, not be fearful too much of the future.
PD symptoms vary for everyone, but what I know helps me is that I have taken control of me and that to date I have lived well and adapted were needed to live with PD.
Your little one will keep you active, but don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
