I Ask This Of You!

I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.

I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible.

I am not responsible for it's contents. I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish.

This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.

Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns.

Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.

This is a free site for all with no advertisements.

Thank you for visiting!

Tips for Talking to Your Doctor

This Macmillan Cancer Support video shares some tips on how to get the best out of your doctor’s appointments and hospital visits.

Dr. Davina Deniszczyc explains that before you meet with your doctor it’s a good idea to prepare a list of questions you want answered. Taking someone along for moral support will help you emotionally and they may also be able to help you remember some of the items discussed during the appointment.
Be sure that you understand all the doctor has told you and if you don’t understand something, don’t be afraid to ask for an explanation. Dr. Deniszczyc’s final point is in regards to honesty: while some subjects may be embarrassing for you to talk about, the doctor won’t be embarrassed and can help allay any fears you have.
