There are so many of us....

I am a member of PAWW (Parkinson's Awareness WorldWide) and through this private group (for Patients and Caregivers) I asked the question, "Is anyone else having issues with Gambling"?

The response was overwhelming; there were so many responses and so many devastating stories from people that never before had any issue. People saying everything from the fact that they had lost so much that they did not know how long or if they could ever repay, to people saying they had lost all including family.

You are not alone! This is very common in people with Parkinson's disease! Please do not make the mistake of thinking you can get control of your finances back. If it were that easy why do we need neurologists, movement disorder specialists, therapists, urologists, etc. to help us control everything else in our body that is loosing control?
