Parkinson's with Eve Jensch

By Hidden Disabilities Sunflower The Sunflower Conversations Share
"’s definitely breaking down stereotypes, get away from the old man, get away from the alcoholic type thing as well. I’ve heard that as well. Oh, have you been drinking, or things like that. So, definitely it’s breaking down stereotypes, that there are an awful lot of younger people, a lot of people in their 30s, sometimes even younger than that."

Eve Jensch is 37 and was diagnosed with Parkinson's two years ago. Eve lives in Ireland with her three children and her husband and joins us to talk about her lived experience with Parkinson's. Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition, which means that it causes problems in the brain as the cells stop working correctly and, over time, stop producing dopamine.

Eve is passionate about dispelling the myth that Parkinson's is an old man's disease. She uses her social media platform to create a community for everyone affected by it to connect, share, and help one another. Her social posts are often humourous despite the daily challenges she faces managing her illness.

Describing her symptoms and the treatment options available, we learn about how vital dopamine is for the body and the various ways in which it is administered.
