Quote
"My ability to form thoughts and ideas into words and sentences is not impaired; the problem is translating those words and sentences into articulate speech.... I often appear sad on the outside while actually smiling, or at least smirking, on the inside.... These impediments to self-expression are not the most painful or debilitating features of Parkinson's disease, yet they madden me more than even the most teeth-rattling full body tremor."  Michael J Fox

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system. The symptoms generally come on slowly over time. Early in the disease, the most obvious are shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking. Thinking and behavioural problems may also occur. Dementia becomes common in the advanced stages of the disease. Depression and anxiety are also common occurring in more than a third of people with PD. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep, and emotional problems. The main motor symptoms are collectively called "parkinsonism", or a "parkinsonian syndrome".
There is no cure for Parkinson’s. It effects over 6 million people worldwide.
