Parkinson's can be so cruel; it gives you the impulse and desire but takes away the physical means to fulfil that impulse. The presence of an increased desire to be desired (so called "hypersexuality") as a result of taking levadopa and pramipexole together with the fact I am 34, single and suffering from quite aggressive Parkinson's makes that impulse very intense and exaggerates how physically isolated I feel; the feeling is frankly worse than the feeling of my physical symptoms.
Parkinson's, despite the physical symptoms, is very much an emotional disease; the symptoms bother us because they have an emotional impact. I believe there should be a shift in emphasis by the medical profession to also treating the emotional symptoms of Parkinson's (treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy). This would allow us the space not only to physically move better but also to give us more emotional freedom to be ourselves and not just a disease.
