Parkinsons and Dopamine Agonists, a story !

A Little Music

Some of the Author’s musical favourites from friends

The words of someone who has been to hell and back and still climbing out of it. 

“Agonists are like your best friend acting nice, but in the bigger picture they have an alterior motive far more sinister than any benefit that the friendship could ever provide.

For most it works, but my experience was stomach churningly horrendous, with life long repucussions of the highest order, loss of business, reputation, family houses, economic and social supports.

Structured social  and medical supports, as well as paitent suitability given patient personailty and lifestyle,  are required that extend way beyond what the medical profession currently offers .

These supports need to look for and continually monitor for the hidden signals, behaviour changes, reclusiveness, adverse risk taking, clouded judgement,  as the participant can very easily deliberately hide the obvious signs of compulsive behaviour, which may seem trivial to those looking in, but will rock the foundations for the person who sought the benefit, ripping their insides with decay and leaving a shell of a human with nothing left inside.”

There is a moral duty of care that isn’t being acknowledged, and those affected are too proud to publicly admit that they fell prey to the fiery forks of the devil disguised.

 This could never happen to me, I won’t be judged by my friends so I’ll keep it to myself”

Introduction and Excuse me!

Pardon me, while I get this social media enterprise working. It has taken me 12 months to get this far with this editorial labyrinth. My former pre Parkinson’s self would have had this whipped up in a week or two, reality changes ability, however I won’t let it kill...

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
