It took me 2 years to get the courage to go to my first support group meeting. At the time they were meeting at the local funeral home so the first thing I did when I got more involved was to move meetings to the YMCA. I know we are all going to be in a funeral home someday, but no need to rush it!
You have to get out and put your best foot forward and meet people—not just those with Parkinson’s. Put your best foot forward and see what you can do. The biggest thing I learned is that support group meetings help—they showed me that I am not alone. Other people have the same challenges you do. Bill T
