Parkinsons and beards

Not for the ladies of course, but how many guys out there with PD have beards?

I certainly do.

Hi. I grew one for the first time in my life a while ago. It hides my stern look a bit.

I would have thought a high proportion of male PD’s would grow beards due to the problems associated with shaking and difficulty shaving. Until recently, I was clean shaven throughout my life but have now grown a beard simply to eliminate the necessity of shaving. Gerrard

46 years ago I shaved my beard off to try and impress the girlfriends mother.
The girlfriend dumped me soon after so I haven’t shaved since.

Think of all the time I have saved.
