145. The woman who can smell Parkinson's

Joy Milne shot to Parkinson’s fame as the woman who can smell the disease. I'm not even making that up, see!


Having been told so many times that my Parkinson’s isn’t typical and I might not even have it I was so tempted to ask her if she could smell me but I resisted. Apparently, Parkinson’s smells ‘musky like a deer’ so poor woman must have been hating life at a PD conference.
