What It's Like to have Parkinson's Disease (Frustration, Fifth in a series.)

Parkinson's is shoelaces that won't tie, grocery store bags that won't open, limbs that won't respond to commands that they move. The symptoms come on slowly, so slowly that one is unaware that the problem lies within. Instead it seems the world itself is resisting you. Now, add complications to tasks that should be made simple, for instance, opening a bottle of pills. If you are not frustrated, you are not human.
