Every person who suffers from a chronic illness (be it Parkinson, cancer, a heart disease or brain dysfunction) is faced with tough choices that regards their life.
You have to be careful when to get your treatment, what doctor might help you the best and so on. You have to choose what to do with your life, looking from the perspective of their illness.
Can you do that or should you do that? Can you work in that field or should you settle for less? Can you get married and have kids when you can guess what effects your illness might have on those close to you?
Can you have a normal life and tell people you suffer from illness X? The answer is yes..only if…
From my point of view, the worst part of having a chronic illness is not the limitations, nor the pain or the treatment you must go through for every day of your life. The worst part is the inter-human relations. Why the answer is YES
