Anyone else invited???

ive been invited by PD UK to an event for young people with pd in stirling (scotland) in september, its funded by the j macdonald menzies trust,

Anyone else going or have you been before. Ive not had the courage (or is it i havent faced the fact i have pd) to go to any support meetings. but if they help in anyway as much as this site it will be worth my while.

  • Hi Mitchdee

    This looks like a PUK -Scotland event (found it on their site). I have been to a PUK - England weekend event two years ago. If i had the chance again i'd certainly go. They are good, hope you find someone else going ( or i could come in your suitcase)

  • thanks im going, i can take a carer with me, i dont need carer yet but my best friends dad was dx 2 weeks after me so i think she will get something out of it too, your more than welcome to hide in my suitcase

  • well, now I am hurt..............guess they don't think i am young enough??

    LOL

  • lol, bet im older than you, im invited as they are giving priority to newly dx people, its not till sept so your invite might come yet ...

  • well now...........LOL, let's first of all, make that bet !!!!!!! but be careful and don't bet too much as I for sure will win. Since I was diagnosed in 1998, the priority ummm people have priority people as you said,, sounds kinda snobby to me, but I will lwait patiently by my front door, for my "mail person"to bring me my invite..........and who will pay for my flight???????

  • im 47,,, from your pic you look much younger and nice and smiley, ive been trying to find a pic but cant find one where im not doing something silly, do people say to you the things they say to me like,,, you dont look like you have pd, what are we meant to look like lol. pd uk will reimburse reasonable travel cost .....

  • U R SO CUTE......... YES I AM SMILEY......BUT I HAVE KIDS OLDER THAN YOU !!! 73 YRS YOUNG !!!!

  • PS. THAT PICTURE IS 3 YEARS OLD, AND SMILING KEEPS ME YOUNG !! NO PLASTIC SURGERY BUT AT THAT TIME I DID COLOR MY HAIR. NOW I AM THE "OLD GREY MARE" AND I AIN'T WHAT I USED TO BE,,...LOL

  • wow you look amazing.... and im sure there is plenty of life left in you, more than people half your age and without pd,,, lol

  • YOU BETCHUM !!!!!!! :-)

    YOU REST YOU LOSE.....GOTTA KEEP MOVING !!!!!!

  • :((( not invited

  • NO

  • I have asked PUK to provide some more details for the members of this site. Personally I have been involved in 3 younger persons events held in Stratford as an organiser and speaker. I know how much people have gained from going, the experience has truly helped. So I would urge you to attend :-)

  • thank you i will be going, as only been dx since jan i have lots to learn about what my future may hold

  • I'd go & if not invited petition to go. I get a lot out of such events here in NYC.
