I was officially diagnosed with PD in 2005, but had PD symptoms begin to appear sometime around 1998 or so. I tried to resolve my symptoms utilizing alternative therapy (SOT, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Naturopathic remedies, etc.), however, after the symptoms became worse I decided to commit to allopathic treatment. I presently take Stalevo 150 4 x daily.
I am an Art Center College of Design alulmni, and have worked in the Creative Arts profession all of my life (Art Director/Creative Director/Photographer, etc.)
Today, I still have the ability to paint, and find great satisfaction in creating canvasses of brilliant color and unique design.
