I don't know, but it seems that my non"Parkie" friends have deserted me. I may be reading into this, but they seem to have abandoned me like this PD thing is contagious or that they just don't know what to make of it , or..they think it's too creepy. I don't talk about it or complain to them. I feel that they are uncomfortable being around someone with PD. Sad!!!!! I am sad over this. I wish I had some Parkie friends to hang with. I was a concert musician before Dx and my music friends have also turned their backs on me I guess because I can't play with them anymore like I used to due to the f********tremor. It really hurts. And I live alone. No husband, no pets are allowed in the apt. bldg.,. so I don't even have a dog as a companion. I guess I'm just having a "pity party." ;-(
