If you're feeling frustrated about life with Parkinson's disease, being part of a support group can be one of the best ways to reduce stress and connect with others who can relate to your experience. Caregivers and family members also benefit greatly from sharing questions and concerns with like-minded others.
Not all support groups are right for everyone, however. If you've tried a local support group but didn't like it, or can't find one in your area, consider starting your own. Whether you go for a structured set-up or more of a casual gathering, the opportunity to swap stories and share resources can be truly therapeutic.
