Jon kept the diagnosis in secret. He rejected the diagnosis and looked for other solutions. He just denied the disease. People don’t want to believe that the disease is happening to them. They want to think it’s a mistake because they are afraid of the consequences. It’s hard to accept that something bad is happening to our body and mind, something that we may not be able to control. There are also characterological changes in parkinsonism, the disease not only affects our movement, but also how we feel and how we behave. When dealing with a disease, we often don’t want to be asked about our condition, we don’t want to explain to others how we feel. I think that’s why patients may initially avoid meeting friends. They want to cope with their condition on their own first.
