Im doing good today it was an on day for sure
Angie, Although I would never actually call being diagnosed with PD a blessing, I have been blessed many times over with articles like yours. You keep hope alive!
You sang in Tabchoir? So did I. We need to get together. The only other person I know from choir that has PD doesn’t go to Rock Steady.
Never stop believing in the good things to come and keep beating up on those punching bags. Movement of body and mind is key!
Hi Dan! Well,…I woke up this morning and heard YOU singing your blessings!!! Thanks for blessing my day! LOVE #5!!! And, I find that #9 makes life fun too! Your blessings are inspiring to me, and others I am sure.
I’m so sorry to hear about your dad, @lindacmail. It can definitely be so hard on the caregiver as well as the patient. Is your mom able to get breaks or time to herself often? – Chris, ParkinsonsDisease.net Team
I put my life into perspective.
1) appreciate love
2) stop fighting dumb stuff
3) do more fun stuff
4) advocate for PD
5) purr like a kitten on a pillow more often
6) tread softer
7) feel stronger
8) stay positive
9) be more creative
10) adjust to new opportunities rather than complain about losses.
I remember hearing that when we get it earlier, it doesn’t advance as quickly. Wishful thinking. Then again, maybe it was to keep us optimistic. Check out this story about Lou Gehrig during his days of ALS. http://www.espn.com/mlb/flash/gehrigletters
OK. Come and go
My father has been suffering with Parkinson’s disease for many years; he’s hanging on, but his quality of life is very poor. At least he is still at home, but it is very hard on my mother.
