  • You might benefit from reading some of the articles written by Michael J. Fox as he was also very young when diagnosed. I think he is to be admired as he seems to have the ability to hang in there and keep fighting. I love Dundee, my grandfather was born there and I was fortunate enough to visit Scotland a few years ago, beautiful!!

  • hi doll where about in dundee was he born ?i have read mj fox first book a lucky man the guy is a fighter !x

  • Yes, Michael J. is a fighter, he has raised a great deal of money for research. also has a very good website, don't remember the addresss but you can google him. My grandfather lived at 3 Somerville Place in Dundee, he came to the US when he was 19 (many years ago).

  • Welcome! This site has helped me so much. Everyone is supportive and cares. I hope you will find it useful, too.

  • Welcome! Enjoyed your blog! I just started the Neupro patch 3 days ago and it seems to help me. Hope I don't go looney tunes.

  • Welcome to this blog site. It's amazing and always there for me. I was diagnosed on my son's birthday at the end of October this year at the age of 55. Having contacted Parkinson's UK for as much info about Parkinson's as i want to read, i am slowly accepting that this disease is there for life but can be managed with medication. These days if i catch anyone looking at me i tell them straight that i have Parkinson's and that i am still the same person on the inside only with a few extras added. They now accept that i have problems with anxiety, tremor down my right side and general all over body stiffness. Sometimes i find that i want to say something and something totally different comes out of my mouth or i forget that i have already talked about something the day before and find that i sometimes repeat what i have said the day before. I see my neurologist next month so will have a fair amount to talk about with him. Merry Xmas everyone. Many thanks for the support that you all give me much appreciated.

  • Hi,
