    My Mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's about 5 years ago. Yesterday we were told she is in final stages. Her Doctor explained it to me, but I still can't accept it.

    My father has parkinson's for about 4 years now. He recently started to have seizures. When they occur, he is like fainted. After 5-6 minutes he comes back to normal stage.
