    It’s been awhile since we’ve done a general check in with the community and I’m curious – why did you join this forum? How did you find us and what are you looking for? Is there anything we could be doing to improve your experience? Don’t be shy — Jean and I want to hear from you!

    Being a part of a group who understands what I’m going through means a lot to me. I came across this forum by searching for Parkinson’s news. I love the news stories posted every day. I love to learn new things and keep my mind busy.

      Marcus, there is great comfort in knowing we are not alone in what we experience with PD.  I believe your positive attitude will go a long way in helping you battle this disease.

      Awesome. Thanks for sharing, Marcus, and thanks for being part of this forum community! Outside of Parkinson’s disease, what are some of your other favourite topics to learn about?

    Recently it’s been all about brain and body health, supplements and foods that boost dopamine levels. Also started to study Spanish as a second language. And learning to draw not very good yet.

    I joined as a result of reading some of Jean’s articles on the Parkinson’s News Today Daily Digest. Also I’m here to learn and to help others in any way I can.

    I joined this forum, because I think that sharing experiences about PD may be helpful in coping with the disease. PD, the poor release of dopamine, is a matter of brain. I wouldn’t be surprised if, sharing experiences, habits, info, tricks, one day someone finds out a way – an exercise, a trick, a behaviour – to make brain release dopamine apart from the substantia nigra. I experience sometime a lack of symptoms even without drugs and in that case I question myself on the cause of that welcome event… I then track what I did in the past hours: exercise? manual tasks? brain tasks? listening to the music? dancing? sex? restful sleep? any not routinary task? I still haven’t find the correct link… I’m still chasing it and I hope to find an answer may be reading a post right here in this forum! Thanks you all for being here!
