You might have Parkinson's if:

 

You blame the wall for walking into you

 

If you've actually had to say....Help I have fallen and cant get up

 

You try to put makeup on with hand tremors and you look like a clown

 

Your pen flies out of your hand as your writing and hits the person across the room

 

You visit a retirement community and the residents walk faster than you.....

 

Getting up in the middle of the night, surfing the net for a while, and going back to bed is common

 

you don't remember a good nights sleep

 

you wear shoes that you can just slip on

 

you wear your slippers out in public because they dont have laces. 
 

you can no longer take showers alone, and rely on anything and everything that you can grab to help you get out of one. (BTW, not all towel racks can hold up to this type of abuse) 
 

You've ever considered using a hammer to open a jar

 

When furniture is positioned around your house not for aesthetic reasons, but for on a support for walking

 

When you’ve learnt to take a deep breath and not snap someone’s face off when they tell you about the “dead cert miracle cure” their friend’s brother’s second-cousin’s acquaintance used who’s “totally better now”.

To quote Cowboy, (a former regular forum member)..........Parkinson's brings us all together. With our many differences and emotions. We have something in common here. It is progressive, dangerous and has adversely affected our lives. We come together here looking for knowledge and comfort from one another.

you might have Parkinson's if:

 

The floor hates you, the table and chairs are bully's, and the walls get in the way..........

 

if you walk into walls, posts, fences, and various other inanimate objects.....
