Parkinson's Disease?

I'm twenty years old and I don't remember there ever being a time that my grandma wasn't shaking. She never went to the doctor and she refuses to admit something is wrong with her but, everybody knows she has Parkinson's. I'm not sure when her symptoms started showing though.

Can Parkinson's Disease be fatal?

I know this is a silly question, and is probably common knowledge, but I haven't been able to find out the answer to it. My grandfather (who is about 60 years old) has had Parkinson's for a while now, and I'd really like to know if it's something that can make you die. I'm hoping not, but whichever, I'd like to know. If anyone can help me out then thank you.

I was hoping to get some insight on how to help my girlfriend to learn to use the bathroom at my place/in public places. She is a very reserved and shy person, and this problem is causing a lot of frustration in our relationship. She can urinate fine, it's the other thing that she can't do anywhere but at her place. Because of this we can't really do weekends together or go on ...
