Its good you joined the forum. I am 62 and I also moved to France in 2008. Are your symptoms mild?


Shasha, sorry I got that the wrong way around......I hope you enjoy living in France. We have a couple of members who live in France and I bet they will be chatting to you in no time.....

Welcome to the forum


Hi My name is Simon, I am 50 years old and I was diagnosed just over a year ago. Still trying to make sense of having Parkinson's in my life. I have a tremor in my left arm and my left leg is stiffening up...walking is becoming more difficult. I find the hardest aspect is the mental side where it is on my mind for a lot of the time. I Have also found the importance of staying positive and doing stuff with friends and family...have taken up the ukulele as a result...driving everybody nuts, but I love it and my arm doesn't shake when I play!


Hi both and welcome me 4yrs dx yep wrapping your head round it takes time advice would be stay happy as much as you can enjoy and love! Simon my tremor stops when I play pool weird huh!


Hello Simon
Im left sided too I was dx 2010 age 47 It takes time to get your head round pd not that I have yet
Like you my friends and family are my driving force I have never been able to play a note but just prior to my dx
I was given a Banjo which at the time felt like a real kick in the xxxx I just feel live for today Im training and going skiing

All the best Adrian
