My question was about locating anyone who worked at the World Trade Center as a first responder as I did. I am trying to get PD listed as one of the diseases which could have been caused by the toxic dust created right after the buildings came down. I've done extensive research on this and I believe it can be done. If you were there or if you know someone who was please contact me , It can be very beneficial for future care.
Hi, My husband was a first responder at 911 and was diagnosed with young onset Parkinsons three years ago.
I not only care about them I'm one of them and this could be very important for our future care. Ex : free homecare
I was a police officer who responded in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about 10 years ago. If I could provide you with any info I’ll be glad to help. Dave
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member. There were a lot of those first responders who did not make it. I think it's remarkable that you're passionate about this. Thank you for caring about these guys. Sterling
A lot of respondents indicate that anxiety or depression are Parr of their Parkinson's condition. I tend to agree. I'm not depressed but do experience anxiety especially when having relationship issues. I take a small dose of cipralex an anti-depression and anxiety med. I hope that I won't need to increase it and perhaps I can go off it. Also, I am getting some counselling and it seems to b helpful I hope by the New Year I won't need either. My sister who had PD experienced serious mental health issues especially anxiety and bipolar issues and was on heavy medication for both.
