Michael J. Fox publically discusses his Parkinson’s condition
Michael J. Fox, actor and Parkinson’s disease activist, has recently disclosed in an interview with The New York Times, that his Parkinson’s condition has progressed, and he is having more troublesome symptoms. Fox has been battling Parkinson’s disease since 1991, and he has been a major advocate for funding medical research to find a cure for the disease.
“Parkinson’s, it’s a gift that keeps on taking,” Fox said in his interview, adding “It’s a kind of patient, unemotional disease. You find yourself in a place you never expected to be, and then deal with what you need to deal with.”
The Actor opens up about his Doubts
Fox highlighted in his interview that, as he gets into his 60s, he has begun to doubt whether he will be able to see much of his 80s and has even questioned whether he will make it to his 70s.
“I don’t have a choice whether I get Parkinson’s, but my optimism has a choice. I can have optimism, or I can have a life, but I don’t think I can have both,” Fox revealed.
The actor, whose body movements have become increasingly erratic as the disease progresses, went on to say that the idea of being a burden on his loved ones, especially his wife Tracy Pollan, weighs heavily on him.
