I was officially diagnosed with PD way back in June of 2017. I remember vividly at first being in total shock and feeling that I was given a death sentence in a sense. However, thanks to the support of my wife, my friends and medical team I soon discovered through my passionate research and being inquisitive that one can still enjoy a good life life after diagnosis. After neglecting my physical health for many years, I now found a definite incentive and reasons to take better care of my health by means of beneficial exercise, eating healthier and staying positive while helping others with my illness.
I wish to mentor those newly diagnosed who are in the initial shock and non acceptance phase to see this is not the end of their life but rather to see the possibilities that now lie before them and what they can do to greatly improve the quality of their life now and going forward.
