Hey wolfpup. It's frustrating and overwhelming, isn't it? Not to mention terrifying! But you will muddle through and believe it or not, you will find blessings in this. I'm not being pollyanish or in any way trying to downplay the difficulties of living with a serious illness. All I can tell you is that it has done this for me. But back to practicalities. I just wanted to mention something my neurologist told me early on - nobody who has PD gets every symptom, and every person gets a different version of the disease. I'm not sure how old you are, but young-onset PD tends to come with a very different set of symptoms. Is your neuro aware of your family history? If not, please be sure to mention that. There is a great deal of research going on around PD and genetics.
