If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, whether to continue to work is your personal decision to make. Your choice may depend on how much physical and emotional stress your job involves. Many people who have Parkinson's disease can and do continue working.
Most people with Parkinson's disease who continue working tell their employers about their condition. The disease may or may not affect how you are able to perform your job. If it does affect your abilities, some employers may work with you to create new or different opportunities in your job. Others may not be as accommodating.
