Saw this headline in the Parkinson’s disease news feed this morning.
It is becoming more generally known that Parkinson’s disease not only influences a patient’s motor functions. Patients often also suffer from depression , fear and incontinence, for example.

Wow! Man! Am I glad I don’t speak Dutch! I’m having ENOUGH problems with my language processing in ENGLISH!
