Another website about Parkinson’s Disease? How is mine different than the others?
I write from my personal, unique experience.
Some key reference dates:
- November 17, 2016. My neurologist confirmed the diagnosis. Parkinson’s Disease.
- October 31, 2019. I had Deep Brain Stimulation surgery. (DBS) Part 1.
- December 7, 2019. I had DBS surgery. Part 2.
- October 1, 2022. Retirement began.
Since October 1, several “Ah-ha’s” (moments of insight and understanding) inspired change in my attitude and actions. While Parkinson’s changes my brain, I am transforming my mind.
Podcast and blog will chronicle what my learning (including lessons learned the hard way) about managing the uncontrollable. About intentionally and consistently living to keep the disease from winning. About intentionally and consistently living to keep the disease from winning.
I write from my personal, unique experience. Other patients may recognize similarities with their own symptoms and struggles. I invite and welcome them into the conversation.
I hope that you who have a personal connection with Parkinson’s (along with the simply curious), will increase in your awareness and understanding of the disease.
