“People with Parkinson’s frequently tell us that a lack of understanding from the public is one of the biggest challenges they face.”
This may be true for many, but it is not true for me. I have always found the public very helpful and polite. It is my family who are my biggest challenge. I live alone with my wife and daughter and feel as welcome in my own home as a turd in a swimming pool. I went through a dopamine agonist phase which I am certain blighted my relationship with my daughter while she was growing up. Whenever I speak to my wife, as politely as I can, my words are frequently weaponized and somehow used against me.
I realize this cannot be fixed, but I thought I should speak up for the public because many of them are very nice.
