Fear and Shame part 2 episode summary

During this episode of The Parkinson’s Podcast, panelists from our Living with Parkinson’s meetup discussed fear and Parkinson’s. They talked about the difference between shame, guilt, and embarrassment, and they shared the various ways shame shows up for them. Again, this panel doesn’t hold back, and we’re so fortunate to have them tell the hard truth and share their journeys with all of us.

In this episode, topics discussed include:

  • Feeling a loss of relevance in the lives of family members
  • Shame when I was diagnosed
  • Shame around impulse control
  • Side-effects of medications and shame
  • Importance of community to overcome shame

and more! We hope you enjoy!
