Hi Cathy,


Welcome to the iVillage PD board. I'm glad you found us and I hope we can offer you support, information and friendship...


I'm sorry to hear of your diagnosis. That's pretty amazing that so many family members have also been diagnosed. In your post you said, "I know they say it is not genitic but you could not prove it by me." Actually, they used to say it wasn't genetic, but over the past decade they've been able to prove that there is a genetic factor in a certain percentage of cases. Here's a site that does a good job of explaining the recent findings regarding GENETICS & PARKINSON'S.


One thing to take from the aforementioned link
