About this Forum
Posted 19 January 2013 - 05:23 PM
I am a Therapeutic Recreation student and am currently writing a paper on Parkinson's disease. Part of this paper focuses on the supports that exist for those who struggle with this disease. A friend, who's husband has Parkinson's, directed me here--she and her husband think highly of this forum. And I am wondering if you would mind sharing your opinion with me too...
What makes this a good forum?
What are some of the benefits of being a member?
Are there any drawbacks?
What other support resources can you recommend?
Thank you very much, in advance. Having "real life" evidence will add great value to my paper.

We are also Lucky to have the Ask the Dr. ,Ask the Pharmacist, Ask the Nutrionist, forums ETC. This has been a fantastic support for myself and many others.
Drawbacks? Hm...rarely getting to meet the other members in person. Occasionally it happens but not often enough

There aren't any drawbacks that I can think of, and I really don't utilize any other "support" services other than this forum.
