    Young Onset - a difficult road

    I am also your age and diagnosed 3.5 yrs ago. I had some of the same physical issues. I have not experienced brain fog. I also had major anxiety & depression. I still have anxiety but I’m managing it. I take pramipexole but no C:/L at this point. I exercise and help run a fitness program. I’m a coach for Rock steady boxing. Start exercising yesterday! Welcome & reach out anytime! LAD PS I also blog... https://ladpdjourney2.wordpress.com/

    Welcome to the club

    Make sure your feet are not close together...it’s a PD thing. Wider base is more stable. LAD

    Early onset PD

    Definitely see an MDS and seek out a research hospital. It’s worth a drive if you need to do one. Plus your son is young so it would benefit him to do any type of research studies. I have done 4 in the past 3 years. Good luck! Reach out anytime! LAD

    Good morning!!

    My hips are really stiff. As for getting out of the chair... make sure your feet are about shoulder width apart. As parkies we tend to put our feet too close together...for everything! Wide base...better balance !!! LAD

    Good morning!!

    I survived! My partner & I lightened the mood. The first speaker talked about PD & symptoms. I joked around a bit and then just shared my story. I found myself using stuff I wrote in my blog. I think we made them feel like PD is not the end of the world.😊🙏 Thanks for the well wishes!

    Good morning!!

    Ok I have two public speaking presentations coming up. One is a presenting our fitness program and the other to a support group about exercise and doing research & clinical trials. I’m terrified but it’s for PD so I have to do it. I’m hoping since I will be talking to people with PD or work with PWP l will shake it til I make it😳 LAD

    1. Exhale completely 2. Deep breath in 3, exhale slowly through your mouth like you have a straw in your mouth easy! It’s supposed to slow your adrenaline down! LAD

    Anxiety is my worst symptom and a trigger for tremors. I try to talk myself through it and use a breathing technique my psychologist taught me. LAD

    Who's on your healthcare team?

    Impressive! My MDS is great and starting our exercise program has allowed me to meet OT & PT. And my son is a PA and my sister is a PT. 😊 LAD

    Good morning!!

    I saw a rehab psychologist when I was in my medical limbo and then in my early diagnosis. She saved me. I had lost 20 pounds and was a mess. I also kept a journal which I shared with her. Prayers! LAD
