Parkinson's Awareness Month: Finding a Middle Ground

April 1 marks the first day of Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month. This month, our theme is finding a middle ground. Life is full of ebbs and flows, pushes and pulls. When you or a loved one is living with Parkinson's disease, the fluctuations between good days and bad days can be frequent and unpredictable.

Finding a middle ground means accepting the present reality even if it is painful or unwelcome. What is living with Parkinson's teaching you? How does it shape the way you view life? What strategies do you have for accepting the positives and negatives that you encounter on a daily basis? Share in our forums here:
