A Parkinson’s diagnosis is a life-changing event that takes time to adjust to. There are no hard-and-fast ways of tackling the condition from day one — everyone’s symptoms are different, and Parkinson’s is a highly individualistic disease that varies widely from patient to patient. Remember that you are not alone; there are many sources of information and support to help you chart your own course for living well with Parkinson’s disease.
It is likely that your symptoms will change over time, as will your outlook. However, a diagnosis of Parkinson’s can become an opportunity to re-examine priorities and focus on what you can do, not on what you cannot do. Many patients report that through their experiences with Parkinson’s, they come to find acceptance, mental strength and a focus on healthy living. These are all reasonable expectations of a future with Parkinson’s disease.Learn about healthy living with Parkinson’s
