I've only just joined the forum and you are my very first post - so thank you. I am 67 and was diagnosed Oct 2014. I can only imagine what it's like at your young age. Hope something of this helps - even if it's just a sentence. I was also in shock after a particularly unfeeling confirmation of diagnosis. (he had the empathy of a flea). I didn't know who to ask stuff, the parkinsons nurse went on maternity leave with no replacement. I didn't even know the questions to ask, let alone the answers. Slowly and unsurely i found there is a lot of info available out there but that if you go on the internet only look at 'recognised' sites. Best advice given was not to look at worse case scenario future, but to focus on me, now.
I decided to accept I'd need time to stop reeling and allowed myself to feel sad or confused, remaining aware that it wouldn't last but was a period I needed to go through. I didn't fight it, I 'got through' it.. Then I started to find out what I could do, and learned that exercise has a big impact on symptoms so i joined a gym. Then I began to work on what I needed to be thinking to feel ok, that was very important to me; I choose my thoughts carefully and I think that they really matter. And I asked all my worried friends/family if we could not lose our sense of humour over it. I 'gave them permission' to make jokes or laugh at my frailties. And oh, we do! It's a work in progress, and the first year was hard, but I'm getting better at managing it. It's a massive adjustment - it's bound to take time. Finally, I'm quite pedantic, and I like good grammar and punctuation, so I deliberately don't give parkinsons a capital P or an apostrophe. That's my small protest, it doesn't deserve them! Wishing you the very best you can hope for, from B
