My husband is in the early stages, diagnosed last fall. He doesn't mind answering questions if there is something he can do to help.

Thank you for picking PD as your area to study! This disease is different for each and every one of us, as you can most likely see by reading the various posts and discusions here. I am an RN, and had to retire 100% disabled several years ago. I can tell you that I never knew much about PD and it has been a learning experience for me.

If you haven't already, take time to read what's already posted on this community. I'm sure many of us won't mind sharing our experiences.
