I am so sorry u have parkinsons at such a young age. You mention people wont take it seriously if the word disease was disregarded.... I think people are very aware of this condition, especially now that quite a few celebrities have made it public knowledge that they also have it. They also know that it is a very cruel condition. However, I wish you well and hope hope they find some miracle drug before too long. Best wishes to all who are going through this horrible condition, syndrome, whatever u prefer to call it. Anything except disease.... makes one feel unclean.
