Parkinality is a predominantly positive website about living with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (YOPD).  I am not medically trained and everything is my personal opinion and is as a result of my experience of living with YOPD.  Please consult a medical professional for any advice or answer any worries.  

Diagnosed in November 2012 at the age of 44 I try to remain positive and concentrate on what I can do, rather than dwelling on what I can’t.
