Thanks everyone. It's nice to be able to bounce thoughts off of people who understand. My mom was complaining the other day that the neighbors who know that she has PD are now treating her like a fragile doll. She was weeding the garden a few days ago and one of the neighbors asked if she needed help. I can see how that is going to get annoying for her very quickly. My older brother also wants to drive her everywhere when she is still perfectly capable of driving. I told her to just keep doing what's she's been doing and ignore everyone else. I think one danger of PD is shutting down and giving up. I would think that even a healthy person who shuts down would deteriorate much faster than normal. That's my babbling for the day :) Have a great day everyone.

You are absolutely correct, your mom needs to keep doing what she's doing, as long as she can, because that is exactly what she needs. Just make sure she gets plenty of exercise as well.......
