parkinson and apathy

Has anyone experienced apathy with Parkinson's disease?
worn1 responded:
wmalice I have become more emotional. I use to be able to conceal what i was thinking, No longer. If i dislike you or am board it is evident. I could watch old yeller and not shed a tear. now just mention a dog experiencing abuse I cry. I have become more atune to people and how they feel. My personality is slowly changing to the oposite. Not happy about it but nothing I can do about it.
There are none so blind as those that will not see

Thank you for your response. I didn't know why I was feeling this way. I have no feelings, not happy, sad, excited. I can laugh but I don't cry much. It is so weird. I am like you their is nothing I can do about it so it really doesn't bother me.

I forgot that this was another first sign of my PD. I used to tell my husband all of the time that I stopped caring about anything any more. I didn't understand what was going on. I just didn't care about others. I forgot about it but it bothered me and am glad that the sinemet helped with that non-feeling as well!!!
