In other words; to effectively self manage pd you need a constant support network working in the background.
The support needed is dependant on your own lifestyle choices but is usually provided by a dedicated care or care network, often family members.
For example you may require help to run a house which frees you to concentrate on managing your illness.
or you may just need support from professionals and other pwp/people regarding pill regimes or state of mind.
Whatever your situation you will need some dedicated support at some point.. Some of this gap can be filled by volunteers some need dedicated specialists.
The older you get the more care you will require, however well you manage your wellness.
You also need to factor in a contingency plan for sudden changes.
More focus on this area rather than the cure would be appreciated imo.
