When you first hear those words from your physician, "You have Parkinson's Disease", it can be stunning! I know myself, that when I received "the word", all I heard for the rest of the visit was a dull buzzing sound in my ears and flashes of what my life would become shooting through my brain.
Luckily, my wonderful wife was along for the diagnosis and she sprang into action almost immediately. She arranged for the two of us to meet with Adina at PSCKY, and it was such an informative and uplifting session that I agreed to attend the PD 101 session she was presenting. You cannot believe how prepared I left that session to fight the effects of PD, talk with my physician, medicate and exercise my way to a fuller life. Since those first sessions, we have participated in exercise classes, workshops on medications, and of course the yearly Symposium which puts just about everything a Parkinson's patient could or would need under one roof. I am sure that there are larger and better funded non-profit organizations, but when it comes to patient programs, caring and helpful staff, providing useful resources for someone who suffers the ravages of Parkinson's disease, PSCKY cannot be topped.
