Is there a Parkinson’s profile?
More Apps for Parkinson’s coming soon!
Is there a profile for the person who gets Parkinson’s disease (PD)? It’s a question that I have put to some of America’s top Neurologists (not scientifically) and as expected some say that there may be a certain personality type and some say that there is no evidence for any type of profile. What if , just maybe, Science is missing a large component of the causal mystery of PD and that cause is even more than the suspect of genes and environmental toxins?
Having had PD for close to 25 years, I have met and spoken to several hundreds if not thousands about PD and their symptoms. Here is a discovery that I have made and loosely base what I see as a potential profile for many of the people that I have met with PD:
- People with Parkinson’s are consistently kind, sensitive, and compassionate.
- People with Parkinson’s are achievers, driven, well-educated and well-informed.
- People with Parkinson’s are problem-solvers, artists, creative, and people of innovation.
As much as I abhor labeling and profiling, maybe there is someting to this. I’m not a scientist, doctor,or anthropologist, but I can’t discount my observations and experiences. What do you think? Please subscribe, comment, and share if you like my blog. Thanks.
