On a flight currently displaying signs of Dyskinesia.

Passenger: Are you ok?
Me: Yes. Yes, thanks for asking. I am exerting side effects to medicine.
Passenger: What’s wrong? Can I help?
Me: Very nice of you, but thanks I will be fine. I have Parkinson’s
Passenger: Is it contagious?
Me: No, it’s a neurological disorder that affects motor movements.
Passenger: Oh, are you sure?
Me: Yes.

He has since asked to change seats and now I have more room so I drew in my own friend.

This is why awareness is important. People simply don’t know enough.
