I feel that the uniqueness of this disease makes us all feel alone at times. That nobody else understands.
That is why I no longer look too far ahead.
I’m going to enjoy today as best I can and worry about tomorrow…… tomorrow.
I’ve only got one life so I’m going to live it. Parkinsons or not.

I hate this disease. It has ruined my life.
So I have started a different life.

Peace and love

I surround myself with positive people, I accept I cannot do somethings either at all or not as well as before PD, I never look back, only forward. I NEVER miss a party if I can help it.
