I'm glad that I came across this discussion/ forum for those who have PD.
I feel so upset with myself at times. It seems that there must have been something that I could have done to prevent PD from happening. I just turned 68 and I probably come across as whining. I don't mean it to be that way, but I guess there are times when I feel sorry for myself and my wonderful wife, who now has to do all of the driving, who has been so upbeat and supportive
There are so many things that I used to do, that now I can't. I used to play guitar and banjo, but my hands and fingers do not cooperate now.
I attend church and my faith truly helps by providing support to me.
This last Oct. 2016, even before diagnosis of PD, I fell in the front yard and as a result, I broke my neck.
I was taken to hospital where they performed surgery on my first two vertebrae. I'm thankful I'm alive and after five months, I'm nearly at an end of my PT.
But, even though I know that I'm not, I feel like I'm a burden to others.
Feel free to ignore this posting. I know there are lots of people far worse than me, but I'm curious to know anyone else has gone through these mood changes and changes in their self esteem.
Thank you for hearing me out.
