Living Well With Parkinsons's Disease

I bought this book for my group - The Lakeway Area Parkinsons Support Group. I have several in our group already reading the book and passing it around. Doctors dont tell you about the disease and sometimes learning from those who have it and have experienced it is more informative. Sometimes science leaves you in the dark.

Real PD information from Real PD people

I admit to being prejudiced - the authors are my daughter and son-in-law (43 and 47 years old) that are very active in the international advocacy and support for PD patients. Since I can't take the disease away from my children and I live 800 miles from them, I am "helping" by starting a PD support group in my community. The book is used as a study guide in our meetings. The group feels the personal touch the authors convey. It's like having a conversation with them. I must say I am in awe of the authors and all the research and personal experience they've brought to the book. You'll like it too. And remember, you may have Parkinson's Disease but PD does not have you.

Relating to others

If you have parkinson's, as I do, or if someone in your life does, than this is a must read. It is full of information for the sufferer, but its most important contribution is in helping both victims of the decease and those who suffer nearby understand what is happening. It is wonderful to have people close to you read this book. It aides in how to continue life on this wonderful planet. I recommend it.

Parkinson's Cliff Notes

Even though we are not finished reading this book, my husband (who has Parkinson's) and I are finally getting answers to all our questions. The authors write in an easy-to-understand format and do not hold anything back (unlike some doctors). This is an excellent resource for anyone who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's!! It's also a big help to the caregiver!!
