Hello, I am a new member as of today! I've been searching for a place to share my thoughts. My DH was diagnosed with PD last
January. I don't have to tell anyone here the emotional roller coaster we have been riding since then. He is on 2 PD meds and some
other meds for things and as of yesterday, he got a great checkup with our DR. He sees a neurologist too. I'm pretty sure that
this PD was coming on for at least 2 years before we actually had any outer symptoms. He was dealing with bad stiffness before the
meds and tremors. The meds really help the stiffness and he sleeps better too. I know that none of this is new information to any of
you because you've delt with it and more.
I have been able to get him in to an excercise schedule and we both do it 3 evenings a week together at home. It's really something
he looks forward to.
It's been hard for him because he had to give up riding motorcycles. We both had our own and sold them 2 years ago because we
hadn't ridden them in 3 years. Which is why I say I am pretty sure we were dealing with the PD in those 3 years. He just wasn't the

through each day. I've taken over writing checks and doing alot of things that have become more difficult for him but he still helps
me cut the grass.He has good days and bad days, which can usually mean he's on the couch and sleeping alot. But, we get
I've just found myself feeling overwhelmed lately with the changes that are taking place. Some days are hard to deal with. Thank you
for the opportunity to vent here.
