    I have a friend who is in her 70s and we have known each other for years, we became friends after she was my supervisor at my old job. She was diagnosed only a few years ago but she manages on her medication so far.

    My brother-in-law had it - terrible, terrible illness. Be very, very careful about his falls - his last fall was fatal - his funeral is Monday.

    40% of Parkinson's patients get dementia - as did my brother-in-law. Terrible thing to watch - get good emotional support, and get people to come in and help in caring for him.

    You and your family will be in my prayers.

    My mother had it. It was barely noticeable at first but it got worse over the years before she died. She was a strong, independent woman so it was really hard for her but she never gave up. Unfortunately, it also helped push my Dad into a depressive spiral from which he never recovered. But they were married for 52 years, so I am so thankful for the good times.

    Intimately. Hang in there. How long has he been diagnosed? How old is he? Is he on medication? Ask what ever you want, I'm here.

    A good friend and former co-worker. He used to be so vibrant and active. Now he can bearly walk without a severe case of the shakes. His deteriation was so sudden. It's so heartbreaking to see him like that.

    An old friend who passed away from a massive stroke while hiking in 2006 at the ripe old age of 92, He had Parkinsons from the time he was in his late 60's and said that He could cure His shakes with a pile of marijuana, and vitamins, and a regimen of daily cat naps, However, He never cured the mortal condition, He was one of the best Men I ever knew.

    My friend's husband passed away after suffering with it for a very long time. It was devastating. That has been ten years ago, so there may be better treatments now. You're right .... never give up hope. hug

    I have friends who have made it 15 yers or more with proper medication and theropy. If he is strong of mind he can fight back. Once again how long and what age?

    He was in my band. He was fifty seven when he was diagnosed. He was my base player. The music and strings actually were good theorpy but there were nights we had to cover him. We are his extended family. It's hard on his family but the boys in the band will always be there for them. There but for the Grace of God go any one of us. We wrote a number we play only when he is with us called "Hanging tough with Josie". He is uninsured but "the people" are his family, all ages and the bills get paid. We Americans are the most generous people on Earth.

    Parkinson's come from metals in the brain and insecticides like fluoride and other chemical poisonings. Read the Blacklock Wellness Report by Dr. Russell Blaylock MD, "Is Your Drinking Water Fit To Drink? Jan 2008. Dr. Blaylock tells that copper in the brain causes Parkinson. In the Book One Hundred Year Lie by Randell Fitzgerald he said the pesticides they spray on wine crops in St. Helnia CA have something to do with Parkinson. The Palo Alto Patch had an article about a superfund area needed clean up. It was written by Mr. Moss. He said a chemical leaking from a computer company is in the soil and the fumes for the chemical causes Parkinson. I know a few who have the disease.

    My grandfather had it for many yrs. He had the shaking kind. It was so frustrating for him as eating and drinking were extremely hard. Your stepfather has another kind i think where the body hardens. It is the most serious kind. My neighbors husband had it and sorry to tell you but he died. I wish you the best..here is a good website.
