Great article. I like your points and how they guide people to come to grips with where they are. Thanks for writing it.
I really enjoyed your article. It reaffirmed to me that I am on the right and positive path to dealing with PD. I have always been very active with exercise. Running, walking , yoga and Rock Steady Boxing. Lately I decided to ride my bicycle more often depending on weather. I never realized how the bike allowed me to feel like there is no…

I’m sorry to hear of your Mom’s recent decline and perhaps the toll it’s taking on your Dad (and you as well). Your suggestions on trying support groups and a…
Hi, @barbfl – I’m so sorry to hear how difficult it’s been with your husband. Standing by while someone refuses to help himself can be incredibly frustrating. I wanted to share with you some ideas on caregiving when someone refuses care with this article. I hope this helps give you some guidelines on how to approach it. Please keep us updated!…
I am so very sorry to hear you are going through this. It must be so difficult for you. It sounds like your husband has never come to terms with his PD diagnosis. However, it could be the PD and not him personally that is reacting this way. If you haven’t yet, it may be helpful to find a support group in your area for him and even a Caregiver’s…
