I've been hoping that this subject would be brought to light sooner than later. I, for one, have had PD for twelve years. At every turn I seem to hit brick walls. Insurance, no coverage, SSDI, Disability, Neuro.
seemed to push every agonist RX on me w/ horrible side effects leading to bad things worse than the PD symptoms. Being honest, dear friends, even with a loving family and network of friends including the PD online groups. I've been to a dark place several times. And it's very private and oh so deep. I spoke with my Neuro. and got BS in return. PD causes every part of my life to be distracted. From my waking breath
until I go to sleep PD has control of my body and my thoughts are fractured. My life is like a lifetime perfectly assembled puzzle coming undone. More and more. My heart is broken for Robin Williams and the family he leaves behind. The mountain of painful battles he carried on his shoulders and the PD DX he kept private toppled that mountain of pain and the end was his only escape from the pain. Oh, sweet Prince!
