Michael J. Fox is opening up about battling Parkinson's disease for
the past 20 and how he initially coped with his shocking diagnosis.

Fox, 50, who learned he was stricken with Parkinson's when he was in the
prime of his career at age 30, admits that alcohol became an early
crutch. "For a time I dealt with it with alcohol, which turned out to be
a disaster. I'd always been kind of a partier, but this was the first
time I was drinking in order not to feel something. It had a dark
purpose," he tells Parade magazine.
