|Year of Birth||
According to the American Parkinson Disease Association, “Today, there is a new diagnosis every nine minutes, though Parkinson’s can be present for years before being diagnosed.” I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2021 a few years after being diagnosed with benign essential tremors. Last year, I was DNA tested by PD GENEration: Mapping the Future of Parkinson’s Disease and” tested positive for one copy of the G2019S variant in the LRRK2 gene, which is associated with an increased risk for Parkinson’s disease.” (My great aunt suffered from Parkinson’s disease.)
