I was diagnosed with Parkinson's on 29 January. After convincing myself that the slight and intermittent tremor in my right hand was nothing more than a trapped nerve, this came as a complete and very nasty shock to me.
Now however, I feel as though I'm gradually coming to terms with my diagnosis and manage to be positive about it and my life ahead for most of the time. I've played club cricket for 39 seasons and also go out cycling regularly on my road bike. My consultant has said that this will stand me in good stead so here's hoping he's correct.
I'm also looking forward to drawing some inspiration from many other stories like mine on this forum
