Returning to the Forum


#1
Well I see a number of my old friends are still here and a whole bunch of new people. A little about me. I live in the town of Torquay in Devon (previously Buckinghamshire) as a single person. I have a rented property in a sanctuary home providing extra care. I love it here. I have two daughters one in London and the other in Brixham, but sadly don't see much of them or my one grandson. I am 55 years old and been fighting this wretched disease since I was 39 years old. I say fighting because I am going to give it the fight of its life before I succumb to it . My 32 year old marriage broke up 2 years ago. I am also a transgender in transition from male to female, currently living as a woman.

i would have to consider myself a professional when it comes down to matters about PD. I have done all of the medicines, injections and syringe drivers and have just been assessed for Deep Brain Therapy. Not sure i want to go that route. Maybe some of you old soldiers who have had DBT can let me know how you have coped.Anyway I look forward to co-relating with you all.

Best regards

Oh - hi to Pokermid
