Let me start with myself, maybe you can relate...

Updated: Dec 22, 2022

My name is Mariam Bennouna,

I'm 40 years old, originally from Morocco, living in London with my husband and my son.

I've been diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's disease since I was 28, it was a turning point in my life.

It all started with a stiffness in my right arm, which I have considered as a fatigue or stress consequence. But since I felt that the stiffness was reaching my right leg, I visited my neurologist who confirmed to me the diagnosis.

It was such a shock when the only thing you know about Parkinson is that it's the ''elderly people kind-of disease''. But thanks to my mental strength, my positive attitude and my resilience, I accepted it and I learnt to adapt my life around my symptoms.

Today, most of my family members and friends tell me that they don't even feel that I have Parkinson's, except when my symptoms are very visible (which generally happens once or twice a day for a few minutes). I’ll share with you what I look like with my worst symptoms in my next post!

It is true that Parkinson disease is a degenerative disease that has no cure yet, but it is not a death sentence, and certainly not yours neither.

Share with me your story if you have been diagnosed as well at a young age. Get in touch with me if you need my help.
