Receiving a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease can bring on a lot of different emotions, including fear, anger, sadness and resentment. How did you feel when you were first diagnosed? Is there anything you wish you had known?
What are some words of encouragement would share with someone who has been recently diagnosed with PD? (Perhaps words someone shared with you or you wish they had said?)
I was diagnosed in 2015 and I was in denial and very angry. I am now finally coming to terms that I will never be my old self. I wrote this blog and I believe it was a turning point for me. https://slippedawayblog.wordpress.com/2018/02/26/acceptance-gratitude-and-attitude/
