Mr. Hillaire,

I read your story and I think I understand your situation. Although without living it as you do, I can't completely comprehend the challenges that you must face on a daily basis.  When I read your symptoms: tiredness but unable to sleep for a decent length of time at night, loss of balance, tremors, and even the memory problems; I can tell you that we have  those problems in common.   I have often thought that even though I do live with this lousy disease, at least I do have adequate medicine and healthcare to smooth out the symptoms.  I wish you good luck in your struggles with Parkinsons.

sincerely, jb

I would highly recommend you post this in the "Ask the Doctor" forum.  It sometimes takes several days for him to respond, and your question won't show up on there until he does, so if you've already done that just ignore my post.
