Stages of PD?

I have had PD (early onset at 43) for 8 years and am new to this forum.

I have avoided reading much about the disease because I wanted to stay possitive. That might sound ridiculous but it's worked, that is, until tonight. After making the huge mistake of watching the movie, "Love and Other Drugs" and hearing some really troubling things about PD, I started actually researching the disease and now I am really depressed.

My main question to the group is, do all PD patients absolutely go through all the stages? Am I destined to be in full-time nursing care, unable to do anything for myself and dimented?

If so, I see an overdose of some narcotic in my future (while I can still open a pill bottle)!

Re: Stages of PD?

I found out last year that I have PD. I was 23. I was pretty upset, but I learned to accept it. It isn't fun, and I know what may happen, but I've made it my goal to go enjoy myself and stay strong for my wife and daughter. The way I see it is that if I'm fine today, I'll be okay tomorrow. Just one day at a time.
