Great podcast!

Very informative not only for the person with Parkinson’s, but for family and friends to understand more of what they’re going through.

Great podcast!!!!!!!!

Thank you for doing something I've only dreamed of doing! I dealt with symptoms for 15 years and numerous doctors before my diagnosis in 2013 and a further diagnosis of dopa-responsive Dystonia, when I was 45.

I continue to try to live a normal life with this big shaky monkey on my back! My biggest gripe has been the increasing muscle tiredness and constantly changing medication to combat the tremors and Dystonia. Without the dopamine, I am a vegetable.

Though it has been tough, I have learned a lot from the Parkinsonism. Your podcast has taught me a bunch and I hope you continue the show throughout the progression of your illness.

Thank you again.

Hi Larry
I was diagnosed the same time as you were. Your podcasts are a blessing ...look forward to each of them. I am the oldest of 10 and the only one who has PD. Still cant wrap my head around it. I do not talk to my siblings about any of it.
