26 years ago Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. From that moment he has become the face of advocacy for those facing the life-altering illness. As his disease continued to progress, Fox decided to step out of the Hollywood limelight leading many to wonder how the former A-lister is really doing.

Earlier this year, Fox decided to sit down with AARP to give the world an update on his condition, but it's not what anyone could have expected.

"The truth is that on most days, there comes a point where I literally can't stop laughing at my own symptoms," he said.

Fox went on to explain that he knows how his struggles with everyday tasks must look to others, and how he knows that some people take pity on him. He finds it hilarious, because on a personal level, he feels like a million bucks.
