Seeing as there are 1 in 500 of us with this wretched condition, we should be able to do something surely! God knows what though. Although, to be honest, until I was diagnosed 4yrs. ago, I was very ignorant of what Parkinson's entailed and had little interest in discovering more.
The media and celebrities with PD are our best way forward, I think. Michael J Fox has done an awful lot of publicity and brought it all to people's attention in America. Parkinson's gets mentioned on the news over here occasionally, but I suppose Cancer and Alzheimer's will always be the 'big ones' in media terms.
There must be people with other neurological conditions, saying the same as us......those with MS for instance. Also, I really feel for people with ME, who aren't even recognised as having a problem!
Well, I haven't answered your question, but maybe others will come up with some ideas???
PS. I certainly don't think wearing a T-shirt displaying slogans about Parkinson's, is the way forward. I'm always getting posts on my Facebook page, showing them.........has anyone ever bought one?
