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...
