Where are us YOPD people located? We know there are few of us (%). Us YOPD operate differently the our older peers. We think the needs we have are different. Perhaps some regional or growth to YOPD support groups will be the outcome of my question.

btw - Grand Rapids, Michigan (4/29/2011).

Sarajo, when I was forcibly retired due to PD, I took my lifelong dream trip up the California and Oregon coasts to my home state of Washington. We stayed at an RV park in Pismo Beach and had nectarine pie. We walked our Yorkie Beau on the beach. It was his first view of the Pacific Ocean. I don't guess Bugs Bunny ever made it there, although, like him, we went through Albuquerque! Forgive me if it doesn't make sense.
