If you're struggling with fatigue, you're not alone. Many MyParkinsonsTeam members deal with exhaustion. “I didn't know it was caused by PD. I just thought I was getting lazy!” said one frequent napper. “I’m getting a better understanding of fatigue reading other PD patients’ stories and knowing I'm more “normal” than I thought,” says another relieved member. Many share tips for overcoming Parkinson’s-related fatigue. Exercise is a popular solution. Members also motivate each other to fight through slumps. “When I want to quit, I push, push, push to finish walking my dog or riding my bike - and THEN rest,” advises one.
