Hello, my name's Alex and I have Parkinson's.

I have a lot more shaking coming on. I can feel it getting worse. I can't do the things I used to be able to do.

I've spoken to the specialist and I just can't cope with all the paperwork. I'll have help for the family, but they want to talk about it. I just can't talk about it.

I didn't know what power of attorney or guardianship was, but I had help from my son and we checked the website for the information. And it's been a big help, but now I have a better understanding. I feel better about that. And I have accepted my disease. It will make it easier for the family as I get older.
