- First symptom
I grew up in a medium sized city in Ohio and eventually moved to Cleveland where I have lived for over 40 years. My wife and I have been married 44 years and we have a grown son and daughter, plus a grand daughter 4 1/2. When I was younger I was a produce buyer, a meat cutter, a super-market owner and a contractor.
I'm interested in computers and the internet, genealogy and digital photgraphy.
I'm working on the house I live in. Hopefully I will be able to sell it one of these years.

Riding seems to help keep PD under control and helps with balance.
I continue to work full time in a big box store that sells building materials. I walk several miles a day at my job. I also workout on a Total Gym every day.
I started taking irsadipine after the research results were anounced in June. It has made some of my symptoms go away or decrease. I'm hoping that long term it is going to be a cure,
