The Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’sBy Elaine Benton
Joining on-line support groups is an additional tool that in the last few years has increased in popularity. Particularly for those who live in out of the way places, having little or no interaction with others in similar circumstances, this is where the Internet comes into its own. Bringing people together from around the world with a common thread, I have found it very helpful and of great support sharing information, keeping well informed and in social contact with others in similar circumstances. Even if you feel you are coping well and managing alone, the sense of camaraderie being in touch with fellow sufferers and their families is without doubt of great benefit.
