Parkinsons and time on the water?
OK, so last week I go to the docs for a left side tremor, and shortly thereafter I am diagnosed with Parkinsons. Early onset, but confirmed Parkinsons.....at 50yrs old.
While I obviously have been pouring through everything I can get my hands on about the disease, I have very little "hands on" knowledge of what I am about to face in the field. I am currently a very active hunter and flyfisherman. Not sure just how this is going to affect my time outdoors down-the line?
Are there any FAOL folks out there with Parkinsons? And if so, how has it affected your time on the water? Tying knots, wading, etc? How fast has it progressed for you? What have you done that has been beneficial? I would truly appreciate any insight you all could provide me.
See you on the Water!
