Comic Sonogram, Another Exclusive Look at a Book Stuggling to be Born

Here is yet another snippet from the proposed Great Parkinson's Graphic Novel currently in pre-beta mode at PDS Labs. These are two panels abstracted from a passage on Parkinson's vocabulary. These illustrate the form of depression which I suffered, known as "Emotional Incontinence". Depression is way more common in Parkinson's Patients than in the population in general, but the incidence in both populations is expected to spike dramatically higher if this project ever sees print.

Ditto on your depression - love the term "emotional incontinence"
I may have to steal that.

Crying at commercials finally got me to talk to the neuro about it and get some help. Celexa solved it.

Hey Don, I don't think you can steal "emotional incontinence" because nobody owns it. It is there for anyone who wants to slip it into conversation at their next cocktail party.

That's pretty wild about crying at commercials. This is SUCH a weird disease.

Yours with artificial equanimity,

You mean "WHEN this project sees print" ;)

I read that one symptom of PD some people have is crying easily. Not necessarily depression (which is also a symptom) but crying easily. And the fun never stops...
