Parkinson's is a degenerative disease, and Michael says his symptoms change year after year.

"I think the biggest frustration is when I want to sit down for a second, and I can't sit down…like my legs won't stop moving," he says.

To illustrate his point, Michael says Parkinson's is like having a 4-year-old child climbing around on your lap all the time, pulling on your arms and legs. "You're just trying to be patient and focus on what you need to do," he says.

Michael says simple tasks like brushing his teeth and getting out of bed have become more challenging.
