i was first told i had parkinsons in june1998.it was a shock,i was 46 with two young children.it started with my thumb shaking,the dr said it was nothing to worry about,loads of people have unexplained tremors. my husband was'nt happy with this,so we had to pay to see a consultant.after loads of test and mri scan i was told,its been a slow progression.until now .i can't walk unaided or turn around i keep freezing and find it hard to start again.i must now start levodpa as i can't swallow.i'm afraid i'm not coping very well and feel guilty when i have to ask my family for help.it's the frustration of being helpless . i hope when this medicine kicks in things will change for the better,and i can do things for myself again. heres praying
