    I am 49 years of age, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 5 weeks before my 44th birthday, so just over 5 years ago.

    I thought my life was going to have to take a different turn, and it did, not how I thought though. I thought I was going to have to stop doing everything and stay at home and do nothing all, as I thought that was what happened when you had Parkinson’s. But actually things just got better and I have become more active.

    Parkinson’s affects people in many different ways, a lot of people have shaky hands or expressionless faces and people do struggle walking and moving and are affected by chronic fatigue, all of these I have suffered from I am now part of a research project seeing how nutrition and exercise affects Young onset Parkinson’s and this has changed me dramatically, so much so, I am now part of a team getting ready to row across The Atlantic Ocean completely unsupported from Lanzarote to Antigua which is 3200 miles!
