People with Parkinson's helping people with Parkinson's
If you are newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s and wondering, "What do I do now?", you are not alone. It often helps to talk to someone else with PD. Although none of us at pdbuzz.com are experts in PD, we all have Parkinson’s and lots of experience in dealing with the various issues that PD brings. Among us we have two who have Young Onset, another with 20 years experience with Parkinson’s, and all are very active in the Parkinson’s community. If you would like to talk to someone else with PD or get plugged in to the Parkinson's community, don't hesitate to contact us. Even if you have a long history with Parkinson's and have questions, please reach out to us. We are all in the same boat.
