Your friends may not know what Parkinson's disease is and may not know what to say or do—so tell them. Also, tell your hairstylist, dentist, and customer service people (as appropriate) that you may shake, lose your balance, move slowly, or have difficulties speaking because of Parkinson's disease. Ask for their help when you need it. People feel good when they can do something for someone else. You might also want to keep a few informational brochures in your purse or wallet because you never know who might be interested in learning more about Parkinson’s disease.
