i turned 40 in April 2015 and was diagnosed with Parkinson's on 21st July 15. I went to see my GP because my thumb and wrist was stiff - that was all. I have a ganglion on that wrist, old gymnastics injury, and thought that just needed removing. Parkinson's never entered my head - why would it I'm only 40. It was a bolt out of the blue to say the least. I'm on madapor and they are working a treat. I'm a fighter and a positive young woman who won't be beaten. I believe what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and Parkinson's isn't going to kill me. Even so it's still taking some getting used to and I still cry myself to sleep some nights or burst into tears in random places - train or supermarket are the top two venues lol! I also think this is one long dream and I might wake up. Hoping to find people of my age going through same to chat to.
