Last year I was diagnosed with Young Onset of Parkinson’s Disease at aged 47. It was a huge shock. My active body now to be invaded and compromised every day. But for any of you that know me, I rarely sit down, and I remain defiant in that I will keep moving, through gritted teeth if I have to!
I want to share my story with you to highlight how Parkinson’s doesn’t just affect older people. This is very real for me.
