A hug is duct tape for the soul.

 

From The Mayo Clinic:

The symptoms of Parkinson's disease can vary from person to person. Early signs may be subtle and can go unnoticed. Symptoms typically begin on one side of the body and usually remain worse on that side even after symptoms begin to affect both sides. Parkinson's signs and symptoms may include:

  • Tremor. The characteristic shaking associated with Parkinson's disease often begins in a hand.
  • Slowed motion (bradykinesia). Over time, Parkinson's disease may reduce your ability to initiate voluntary movement.
  • Rigid muscles. Muscle stiffness can occur in any part of your body.
  • Impaired posture and balance. Your posture may become stooped as a result of Parkinson's disease.
  • Loss of automatic movements. Blinking, smiling and swinging your arms when you walk are all unconscious acts that are a normal part of being human.
  • Speech changes. Many people with Parkinson's disease have problems with speech.
  • Dementia. In the later stages of Parkinson's disease, some people develop problems with memory and mental clarity.

When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you have any of the symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease — not only to diagnose the illness but also to rule out other causes for your symptoms.
