Adaptive Devices For Make-up

No haters, please. I have tremors in my dominant hand. I'm still able to go out with my husband and friends, and just feel better when I use a little make-up. Anyone know of a device/methods to apply mascara, lipstick, or brow pencil? Thanks for any advice!

In Connection With Driving, Does Anyone Drive Considerably Below The Speed Limit? If So, Is This A Reason To Stop Driving?

My husband drives easily 20 miles below the speed limit. If it's 60mph, he may drive 35 or 40 mph. He also forgets to put gas in the car. I am concerned about his getting in an accident, and feel he may need to give up driving. Your thoughts?

Any Suggestions On How To Communicate When In Late Stage PD And Can Only Whisper

Any Suggestions On How To Communicate When In Late Stage PD And Can Only Whisper

My Dad is bedridden and weak. He is alert at times and wants to communicate but he can barely whisper. We try to ask him yes/no questions but when he looks longingly at you - he wants to say something. He is way beyond speech therapy helping and in his final days. Just wondering if anyone has a suggestion to try.

Who Is Still Driving?

Who Is Still Driving?

If you are not driving any more, did you choose to stop? If so, why? Did a friend or family member suggest you get a doctor's evaluation to continue to drive? How did that go?

I’ve had those episodes before and I agree they’re terrifying. I’ve never been terrified before that, so it was a new experience for me. I didn’t enjoy it.

If so, what PD symptoms were the supplements expected to help control or reduce, how often did you take them and did they ultimately work?

Thanks for your response!
