It's possible that I actually had Parkinson's for five or even ten years before I noticed the twitching in my pinkie that morning in Florida. Scientists believe that by the time a patient notices even the tiniest tremor--the blinking red light, if you will--as much as eighty percent of the dopamine-producing cells in the substan-tinigra are already dead, totally lost without any possibility of recovery.

  5. I can't imagine what that must be like. I was really sad when I heard he had Parkinson because I always loved his acting! Hope you have a good weekend and thanks for hosting,

    1. He is on a new show, The Michael J. Fox show, and it is pretty funny. Considering it is based on his real life, it is a great representation of him and his disease. With humor thrown in, of course.
