I recently received an email from the National Parkinson’s Foundation regarding moods as it relates to Parkinson’s. They are offering a free downloadable book regarding this topic, here is the website where you can find the publication http://www.parkinson.org/sites/default/files/NPF-Mood.pdf. You can also order a free paper copy of the book at http://www.parkinson.org/pd-library/books/Mood-A-Mind-Guide-to-Parkinsons-Disease. It contains some very good information regarding why people with Parkinson’s have problems with moods like depression, anxiety, irritability etc. and some helpful ideas for dealing with these moods, both with medicine as well as many self-help ideas.
Perhaps many of you have tried one or more of the suggestions in this publication. If so, please share with the group. We all learn from each other when we share our experiences.
