Feb. 21.10 am Sections at Morris Ruth Hess lives in Fort Walton telephone to clients. The State of Beach, Fla., not far from the Wal- ton Sun, which publishes this col- umn. In 1996, a doctor diagnosed her 74-year-old husband Gerald, who had served in the Air Force as a chief Master Sergeant, with Par- kinson's disease. Parkinson's disease affects about one person in a hundred over age 60. A National Institutes of Health Web site reports that this chronic, progressive disease is caused by a loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. It has four primary symp- toms: tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement, and impaired balance and coordination. Other symptoms may include difficulty swallowing, speaking or chewing; constipation or urinary problems; sleep disrup- tions; and depression or other emo- tional changes. "I noticed it right away when some of the symptoms started 13 years ago," said Ruth in a telephone interview. "He had a slower walk, his steps were closer together, and he was leaning from the waist. I wasn't scared because my brother- in-law had it, so I knew what it was and what was coming. I took him right to a neurologist." About six years ago, Gerald had to leave his job in financial ser- vices primarily because he wasn't able to talk loud enough on the Florida had given him a special phone to increase his volume, but even that wasn't enough. "Now, he has trouble walking, and uses a walker for short dis- tances and a power chair when leav- ing home," said Hess. "He's handled having Parkinson's disease well. Part of that is because of his disciplined military background. He gets up in the morning, shaves, eats breakfast. and gets out and does things. He's on the move all the time. We just came back from a week on a Medi- terranean cruise." The last eight years, Hess and a friend, Beborra Rogers, have been leading a 60-member support group in Fort Walton Beach for peo- ple affected by Parkinson's disease. Her particular group has a sub- stantial library containing books and videos about the disease, and brings in doctors to explain new treatments and operations, such as deep brain stimulation. She said, "Get to a support group so you can understand what's happening, what you can do, and understand the medicine. It's possible to keep the symptoms under control with proper med- ication and exercise. You handle it better when knowing what it is and what you can do about it."
