Advice for newly diagnosed


What is the one piece of advice you would give to others just diagnosed with Parkinson’s?  

There is no doubt about it, getting a diagnosis of Parkinson’s can be life changing.  People respond in different ways. Some seek out as much information about the disease as possible or take to the internet to find out about the latest treatment.  Some people find comfort in support groups while others keep their diagnosis to themselves.  A pledge to exercise more or eat healthier is the focus of many.

Think back to the time when you were diagnosed. What worked for you (or didn’t)? What advice do you wish that you were given? What advice would you give to others? How have your ideas about Parkinson’s changed over time. Share your own experience, advice and wisdom with people just recently diagnosed and with PDCommunity! by responding to this post.
