Despite difficulties in understanding story caused by medical terms, this book broadened my perspective on neurodegenarative diseases a lot. Before reading this book, I didn’t know much about Parkinson’s disease. For instanse I wasn’t aware that there are so many symptomps and that different people can have different symptoms, not in the same time. One people can have mild symptoms for 8 years or more and other can’t function after 3 years of a diagnosis. The most surprising I’ve learnt is that L- dopa which supossed to treat, can also cause many side effects like motor impairments or hallucinations.
