Hi Jason! My partner's the one with PD. He was diagnosed 1.5+ yrs ago at the age of 30. It's a lot to come to terms with...and as soon as you do, it all changes. :P

Glad you're here!

Jason welcome...We all undestand you perfectly. I was diagnosed 2 years ago. There are times i think i will never surrender my own denial too. Everytime i hear my neurologist say the word "Parkinson's" i feel this irrational anger and want to shout at him "what nonsense are you talking about. Me, Parkinson's? I'm 37 years old for crying out loud." The only thing changing with time in this imagined conversation is my age....I guess i will probably surrender my denial in 30-40 years from now. can you imagine? "What nonsense are you talking about. Me, Parkinson's? I'm 77 years old for crying out loud "...no, it doesn't sound right...hahaha...

-English is not my first language !

-Aged 39. Diagnosed at 35. On levodopa monotherapy (500mg daily).
