  • So now it is bad news!

    So on the old board I left a message very happy that I did not have Parkinson's. Well after goinig to another neurologist. And going through a boat load of testing. Come to find out it is. I have Young onset Parkinson's disease. I am 27. I havent posted in a while because I haven't been in the greatest of moods. I am getting better now. At least now I am on medicine and for the first time in a while I have reliefe from the tremor in my hand. Which makes the best news. Hand not shaking makes my scissoring a heck of alot better.

    So sorry to hear the news bullydawg...My heart goes out to you. I had a minor stroke 4 1/2 years ago, and I was only in my late 20's. I have some partial numbness and tingling, but thankfully not enough paralysis to notice (except my eye - which if you didn't know before you wouldn't notice otherwise). I'm so glad the meds are helping your hand tremors, hang in there girl. We're here for you!

      What a let down this must have come to you, to think that you were Parkinson free and then find out that wasn't the case. Have they provided you with alot of information on what to expect and what the treatment is? I'm glad to hear that the medication is helping you. That must make things a lot less frustrating for you. KKeep positive thoughts.
      don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

            I remember reading your other posts about thinking you had it and then being told you didn't. I was pleased that you had recieved good news. Now, like others on this board am sad that you have been told otherwise. I'm glad the med are helping you and you're able to groom. Just remember we are here, praying for you.

                I wasn't a member of this board when you received, what you thought, was good news, but I'm so sorry to hear your recent doctor's visit confirmed Parkinson's. I really don't know much about the disease, but I've heard there's a lot of research being done in hopes of finding a cure. I'll be keeping you in my prayers that you'll continue to show improvements with medication and that one day soon they will find a cure.
                Hugs,

                  Stay centered

                  I am so sorry to hear the bad news. I really believe meditation and staying centered can help. not so much the disease but the mind and emotions. don't let this get you down. we are all here when you are down and feeling blue.

                  You are not alone!

                  be well and take good care of yourself!

                    I'm sorry to hear about your news, that is hard to groom with physical problems, but many people overcome in one way or another.

                    Please keep your chin up, keep your thoughts positive and smile even when you don't feel like it. It will help, I promise.

                      That is so tough and I am sorrry to hear it. I will put you in my prayers. I don't know much about Parkinsons, except that it does seem like they are having lots of breakthrough's in treatment. Try to keep your thoughts positive and make a plan for what you can do when or if this eventually makes it impossible for you to groom. It will help you not to feel like a unwilling passenger on a runaway train!!
                      I think about that all the time. What will I do if I can't groom. And while the thought of not grooming is a scary one for me (it is all I have done for over 20 yrs) I know I would be able to do something else and still work w/animals. Keep us posted and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers!
