This is what the books do not say

  • If you go to the web M.D. website. These are the symptoms of Parkinson's disease that you will find
JSlowness of voluntary movements, especially in the initiation of such movements as walking or rolling over in bed
  • Decreased facial expression, monotonous speech, and decreasedeye blinking
  • A shuffling gait with poor arm swing and stooped posture
  • Unsteady balance; difficulty rising from a sitting position
  • Continuous "pill-rolling" motion of the thumb and forefinger
  • Abnormal tone or stiffness in the trunk and extremities
  • Swallowing problems in later stages
  • Lightheadedness or faintin

If you surveyed some
men
 with Parkinson's you would find some of these additional symptoms
Feelings of emasculation due to 
1. Not driving, having to ask somebody for a ride 
2 not working having to ask somebody for money
3 lack or reduction of sexual confidence

The unpublished symptoms maybe just as debilitating as the published ones  

But given all that it could be worse it could be raining
