A few months ago I learned I have Parkinson's I am scared. My dad had it and other members of my family have had it. I am the youngest one who got it early. The others were in their 70's. They say it is not genetic but I can not help but to think they are wrong. I say what my dad went through as I was one of his caregivers. It moved fast with him and it is doing the same with me. They suspected about a year ago I might have. In May it was confirmed.
There are days my whole body shacks it is so unnerving. I lose my balance and fall often. I am on something called Mirapex.
I hope it is ok if I come here.
