Hello all

I am living with parkinson's.

I was dx on July 13, 1998 and I'm doing well. Thanks in large part to "mylove"

I take requip as a base and supplement with sinemet to keep moving. So far so good. I still work, altho at a slower pace and reduced physical work load than before.

I don't know much about anything, but I think about everything. If asked I'll answer. If I think it's important I'll put my 2 cents in. If not I'll keep my mouth shut. I'm not trying to be philosophical or (god forbid) political.

I will be nice and polite and expect the same

What a rotten reason for making friends.

I agree... rotten reason, but everyone can use more friends! Since nobody's taken the bait and welcomed you to the board, I guess it's up to me. :) (Al, Bob...?)

For the rest of the board, Shakydog is my smarter/faster/better half. He's quick-witted, deep thinking, and a lot of fun. I think you'll enjoy his participation.

Shakydog, welcome! I look forward to your input. I am caring for my father and find it very beneficial to understand his side of things. Thank you for joining us. Hugs and blessings to you, Mary

Hi Shakydog, love the name! I'm new to the board too, my husband has PD but he's more of a grumpydog :)
I'm looking forward to your insights and opinions. Emma

Welcome! I am so happy that we have another patient to give us some new perspectives.

shakydog: On behalf of all 2 of us (bandido & LOHENGR!N), Welcome to the patient participation --now trio. Actually, we have the fourth member in the person of Peter who lives in Nairobi and seldom posts. And, like us, he is witty, personable, nonpolitical and (OK) highly intelligent!

I sometimes disappear from this forum because I'm heavily involved in coauthoring a book being written by a group of patients. It is a part of my advocacy program.

We will all be looking forward to your observations, comments, and hopefully a retained sense of humor about this terrible affliction. Hang in there! Bob C

Welcome Shakydog. I am fairly new here myself. My dh has pd. he was dxed about 8 years ago. He takes stalevo and gabapentin for the pd. He is 77 and has other med problems also. I usually read but don't post much.

Hi, Shakydog, and welcome. My 84-yo husband has PD with dementia that varies in severity. He's lost the ability to describe what he's going through, so getting some insight from others who know is helpful to me. I'm pretty new to the forum, and find it wonderfully helpful, warm, and friendly.
