  • I’m wondering how many people on this listserve used statins before being diagnosed with PD. My friend was diagnosed 2-3 years after taking statins. He stopped taking them once I told him about this study:

    It’s all fine, Ally. Since Mom and my Uncle passed, and my friend is now in assisted living, I was finally able to start getting back on my feet financially and emotionally. And I can focus in some of my free time on helping my friend find the best avenues to help himself. At some point, I will take a vacation. Thanks. My main focus on this site…[Read more]

Yes, it was draining, since at the time I had just come off being primary caregiver for my Uncle and Mom for 4 years. Will respond to a gentleman who posted about CoQ10, if I can find him again, and…[Read more]

    • Hi Linda
      Welcome to the forum. I am one of the moderators, diagnosed in 2015 at age 61. Please feel free to post a topic in one of our forums. Note there is a caregiver forum. Your friend is lucky to have you watching out for her. Make sure you take care of yourself. Being a caregiver can be very draining.

    • Hi Linda, welcome to the forums! Like Jean, I am one of the moderators. We are here to help so please feel free to message either one of us if you have any questions about using the forums.
