Learning to live with Parkinson's
I was always an active person, raising 6 kids and participating in their lives. Now, one of my daughters lives near us, and has become a co-caregiver along with my husband. I was the one who was supposed to help her with her son. Never thought I would be in this situation!
Miss the ability to do things on my own, drive to the store, cook, go for a 2 mile walk! I feel diminished! I stay active in a way by doing crafts. It gives me motivation to keep going, and I give away the things I make. That people like my crafts gives me pleasure. Does anyone else have something like this to keep them feel better?
Do you think there is enough awareness of Parkinson's disease?
