A personal perspective on Young Onset Parkinson's

Someone Else’s Story

The EPDA (European Parkinson’s Disease Association) shared a link to this story on Facebook. I’m passing it on:

Living with Parkinson’s: Young father learning to cope with early onset diagnosis

It’s a local interest story from Spartanburg in upstate South Carolina, USA. One of the things they talk about is Early Onset (Young Onset) support groups (as distinct from general purpose Parkinson’s support groups, which tend to be dominated by the older PWP – whose perspectives, needs and interests are often quite different to that of the younger person). Now, I do know of one such group not far from me – I just haven’t managed to do anything about it yet. This has reminded me, and pushed the idea further up the to-do list.
