Living to write. Writing to live. Crazy. Addicted to most chocolate. Okay. All chocolate. Photographer. Lover of Boo and Buddy. Obsessive Pinner.
Misdiagnosed at the age of 32 with Lupus (just goes to prove how these two diseases [and many others] mimic each other), I joined forces with my current neurologist of over nine years (2004). The diagnosis was corrected to Young Onset Parkinson’s disease. You can read parts of my story here at Parkinson’s Journey.
This blog does follow my life, to a degree, but mainly it is a collection of my thoughts, on the good days and bad. It is a collection from my diagnosis with PD to the current day. It is a collection of what I’ve learned and what I am learning (If I wrote what I still need to learn, I’d have to start another blog… .).
‘They’ say (and I’ve never quite figured out who ‘they’ is) that concocting a mission statement is a good way to maintain a focus in your life endeavors. Parkinson’s Journey has such a statement:
“…to encourage and offer hope to others
walking their path with Parkinson’s disease
and to assure them,
they are not alone.”
Encouragement and hope is what my heart’s desire is for Parkinson’s Journey, because Parkinson’s Journey is me, ‘walking’ alongside and reminidng you… you are not alone.
Journeying with you,
