Nobody wants to received a PD diagnosis. I did 9 years ago. And like most of you, I went through a period of anger and sadness. But when I finally came to realize that I had a choice - I could live with joy with Parkinson's or not, either way I would still have Parkinson's. That was such an epiphany for me! Since I chose joy, that is exactly how I feel! I enjoy my family, my activities, and have even be trying new things! I am training to be a yoga instructor because I do find it is therapeutic and want to share that with others in an informed way. The most important advice to give you is EXERCISE!!! Inspire others with your attitude - do not depress them! That just depresses you and shuts others out of your life. And stay social!!! Good luck!
