: My husband is 45 and was just diagnosed with PD. We are all just shocked.
: I know so little about the disease I feel almost embarassed, but my husband's Uncle also had
: PD, so he has had a little more exposure to it. I feel so frustrated I could scream,"WHY US, WHY NOW???"
: I know that sounds selfish, I just don't understand. People have told me that there is help for both of us on the internet
: so that's why I'm here. Hoping that somewhere out here there is a place where I can learn more about my husband's condition.
: Are we doomed? How long will we have together now?
: Thank you for letting me vent a little.
Maribelle, I'm 40 yrs old women living everyday to the fullest, I have PD, and life goes on. You
will find alot of info online and a support group is a good thing. Look for a Young Parkinsons Support Group. Remember your husband is still not the illness.
Praying for a cure everyday. Our day will come and I will be there smiling from ear to ear.
So will you.
