Thank you

I will ask the PD counselor about support groups. I have one more session left, next week.

I also will check on NAMI to see if this organization exist hete in Vancouver BC Canada

My doctor is trying to help me out. I just am not a fan of to much medication. I already take meds for PD and Fibromyalgia as well as type 2 Diabetes. Then the sleep aids. Just to much…..

Thanks

Thank you Tressa.
I will be ordering the hard copy of this book. Will let ypu know how it is anx how it applies to myself. What I can take away from it.

My biggest issue with PD is counseling. I onlyam able to receive a limitex amount of counseling sessions. 4 to br exact, then I need to pay. A same. Well I will ask to see what else is available.

Other than that I am experiencing severe sleep issues. Is this pary of having PD. This is what I have been told. Not sleeping, than too much sleep. Very aggravating

Thanks again

Feb 21, 2017 · Living with Parkinson's Disease - Meet others & come say hi in Parkinson's Disease

Especially when I don’t have many friends and I don’t have any family left at all I’m all alone and dealing with the loss of my mother last year it’s not helping much at all I have been seeing a couple of counselors but that doesn’t really help much at all yes I’m not used to having Parkinson’s and I still haven’t accepted it yet my biggest problem is I’m alone now after my mother passed away I have nobody to talk to or ask anything when I had issues before I would talk to my mom even when she was in the home with Strokes and a little bit of dementia I could still talk to her and ask her and get advice from her because she was still there and would respond to me in her own way Parkinson’s has thrown me a curveball if I may call it that I just got on disability and that’s good news but still there’s a lot of issues going on in my life that are causing me problems have to move I don’t know that many people to even help me. trying to find a place to live dealing with my landlord and I have so much to do by the end of the month it’s really really causing me great deal with depression and stress and that Sort of shuts me down. What I’m going through tonight is the fact that I have nobody to talk to I don’t have an older wiser individual that I can go to and just listen to me or give me some advice both my parents have passed away now I have two sisters but we haven’t spoken in years and years you only time they spoke to me it was one of my mother passed away for me to sign the papers at the lawyers and that was it and they haven’t spoken me since that was over a year ago what it comes down to is I have Parkinson’s fibromyalgia that whole bunch other things a car accident I was just in a few months ago I spent 16 years looking after Mom so I don’t have a girlfriend or wife or kids again just alone yet I’m trying and seem to be coping okay with this by myself and with the help of maybe this group I might be to deal with it better I am speaking with a counselor at the Parkinson’s Society of BC for five or six sessions and then it’s over with I need long-term counseling to deal with everything oh by the way this is voice texting so that’s why there’s no periods or capitals or anything thank you very much for your time
