I am 32 years old and live with my husband and five cats in Conway, Arkansas.  I was diagnosed in 2007 with Parkinson’s disease at thirty years old.  Funny, how being young and having a life-altering illness changes the way people think of you.  I still think of myself as a music fan, a baseball fan, a wife, a sister, a daughter before I think of myself as a PD patient but outwardly the PD is my most obvious and striking trait.
