I am 59 and was dxed in 2009. I was exercising and doing okay, but now I am feeling fearful about the progression of the PD. I was a concert violist for 35 years and I feel my life has lost a lot of the purpose and meaning it once had. I now have to reinvent myself and I was accepting the reality of my situation, but recently have become very low on energy and enthusiasm.
I have a tremor in my right hand and toes. I was doing a lot of walking as I do not have a car, but now I have slowed down and obsess that I might fall. My posture is pretty good and I don't shuffle, but I have this "other worldly" feeling when I am out and about. I think it's from anxiety.
I see a counselor 2x a month for psychotherapy.
I am feeling very alone right now. I don't know any other depressed Parkies..
