    I am sorry to hear that you are struggling to come to terms with your recent diagnosis. I have just looked around the forum and found @wolfie4 who has recently been diagnosed too. I hope this helps towards putting your mind at ease and that you are not alone in this.

    Welcome to the community @Mayles1953 and I am sorry to hear you are finding it hard to come to terms with your diagnosis.  Have you looked at the Parkinsons website? They also have a Helpline you could call on 0808 800 0303

    @numptienick and @jaqisitt have talked about their diagnosis of Parkinsons recently and so I hope you can connect and chat.
