How Do You Deal With Social Isolation

How do you deal with it
This is why Parkinsons awareness is so important other people have no understanding and sadly it’s up to people with PD to educate them.Its why forums like this and local groups are so Important.

I dont ask as much of myself but I still strive to give my all,failure is an option these days.
PD is a reason not an excuse.
What I cant do one day,I can revisit try again and SUCCEED at level that satify's me.The reverse is also true.
Whats good about failure,is the fact that you are willing to have a go.
As long as your not endangering yourself or another try and try again.Whats impossible one moment is possible the next thats the confusion we live with.

The isolation just leads me to severe depression. I would like to do what others enjoy and I enjoyed in the past but I have to ✔ myself and not do any self harm for a moment of enjoyment. I often tell others when asked that I have an appointment of have already made plans. I often wonder what people think of me since my body doesn't allow me to do what I used to enjoy. I am stubborn at asking for help when needed. I get answers when I do ask, even simple tasks, I'm told that I overthink what has go be done. I guess I'm more over compulsive now than before when I just thought that I was more detailed oriented than others. Anybody with sane issues?

I continue to be amazed at the complexity of the human body that God gave me. Yes, I am almost unrecognizable from a few years ago, but let me ask you this. Have you ever thought of the mechanics your hand goes through to fasten a seat belt ? This is a task that is difficult for me until I realized that my hands were skipping a step. If you pay attention, your hand does not push directly into the clip. It pulls the strap over and then bends the wrist ever so slightly to accommodate the clip. I like to know how things work and I had never given a thought to this seemingly simple task.
