Have you or anyone of you noticed that with your pd diagnosis and los of some of your abilities,you have also lost some of the family and friends that were usually close by? I am finding it difficult to be honest with the people that I have loved and counted on as being close to me and my family, because some have already removed themselves from our lives . I guess I should not ne surprised the same thing happens when people get divorced, they divorce there friends too. I feel like I should be wearing a sign that states IT IS NOT CONTAGIOUS you can't catch it !! Trying to deal with pd with a smile on your faceis hard enough , but to do it without the friends you thought you had just makes it harder.
