Some of the health issues my family and I deal with are:

Parkinsonism ~ I was diagnosed as having Early Onset Parkinsons for the last six years and have had symptoms for the last nine years. A few months ago, my diagnosis was changed from EO Parkinsons to Parkinsonism. You can read about that here.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency and Pseudo Cushings Syndrome, Sensory Integration Disorder, Dyslexia, ADD, gluten intolerance, chronic pain (most likely Fibromyalgia), and other issues from repeated head trauma, etc.

My teenage son, whom I homeschool, has Asperger's which is on the Autism Spectrum.

Thank you for reading my blog. I hope that The Journey Unexpected can be used to encourage and inspire others.

The Difference Between Parkinson's and Parkinsonism ~ As Well As My New Diagnosis

This post has been moved here.

Please note that I am not a doctor or in anyway an expert. I am simply someone who has been diagnosed with Early-Onset Parkinson's since I was 42 while having all of my symptoms since I was 39 years old. It took 3 years to get a diagnosis. Theoretically, I had Early-Onset Parkinson's for the last 9 years.
