I imagine the programme is to increase awareness ? If it isn't it needs to be .
I think we need to see a varied group of people on this programme living with PD. That group should include people with juvenile onset ,young onset , middle aged ,elderly etc. Generally speaking most people seem to think that the elderly are the only group to suffer with it . Indeed someone said to me " you're a bit young for that aren't you " . My GP was astounded when I told him the youngest person in the UK has been a boy of 8.
I would like to see pwp from all age groups from the newly diagnosed to the not so newly diagnosed and how they cope or not as the case may be with the challenges PD brings . The issues pwp face on a daily basis .
I would like to see the positive stories as well as the negative ( obviously) . i know some people seem to fare better than others with this illness. I don't know how I will be myself but I remind myself that there are people on this forum who are living well with PD although it has been life changing . I have to or I would lose hope .
