I am finally going to a new neurologist on Thursday. I have not been to a neurologist for 4 years. I felt it was a waste of time since I did not want medication at that time. I was diagnosed 5 years ago at 49. My symptoms were such a slight tremor and stiffness on right hand and leg that it didn't impede my life very much. That has changed and I have finally gotten the courage to go again. I am hoping that maybe I will get a different, kinder diagnosis, and this was all a mistake. I have learned so much since joining this group. Particularly about the uniqueness of the symptoms (snowflake disease) and the difficulty of the diagnosis. I am scared. I am afraid of medication and side effects. But my ankle, foot, and leg bother me so much. Stairs are a problem and it is interfering with my job. I am scared of the future. Will I have to go on disability at 55? Most of all the side effects, what will the drugs do to me? I hope I don't chicken out, can I bring you all with me? I hate being alone.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
