Hi Luieu2, my father has Parkinson's as well.  He was diagnosed a couple of years ago.  It is hard to watch my father, who has been the strongest man in my life, slowly starting to need my help.  In some ways he is doing well, he is still working.  But in other ways he is struggling more and more and it is really hard to watch.  He is too young, only 63.  We can pray for each other, and pray for the miracle drug!

Hey luieu2, if you ever feel you need a little support (good thoughts, positive energy, or a prayer) just come to the Walk On support thread. We are all pretty good at taking a drowning man's hand over there. You and your family are in my prayers.  You don't have to be religious to ask for support there, friend!

I've seen many people with parkinsons disease, its unfair, but remember that in most cases  while the body doesn't work as well the mind is still sharp. Talk with him, give him and yourself strength through words.
