It’s so good that no one in your family has P.D. But surely you must know someone with the disease?
You’ve mentioned a young person who contracted it. What about Micheal J.Fox? Does his name ring a bell?
Isn’t it another paradox that Robin Williams who played dr Sayer, based on the character of O.Sacks) in “Awakenings” who administered L-Dopa to his catatonic patients (with symptoms similar to P.D.), suffered from Parkinson’s as well? Unlike Palfreman, unfortunately, he couldn’t come to terms with his condition.
