Parkinson's Fighter: Ernest


I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease about 6 years ago. Some time before that, it started with an inner tremor - I just felt restless inside. But visiting a neurologist didn't bring any results. Only when I went to another neurologist a year later, he said: You have Parkinson's.

I didn't believe it at first. I thought maybe the doctor was wrong but then my condition got worse and worse and I started to tremble externally as well. Since then, I have been taking medication and I now have the disease quite well under control. My healthy living environment and especially my social contacts give me a lot of support and encouragement.

I have come to terms with my disease. Sometimes it is a struggle when things don't work out the way you want them to but I always try to make the best of it!
