Painful.

Always present. Always. Even if ‘evidence’ is not outwardly apparent.

Relentless. Mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Kin-friendly. While research shows the numbers to be close to nil for PD to be hereditary, researchers now think that about 7 or 8 percent of patients with PD have a direct genetic link.

Individualistic. No two cases are exactly alike.

Non-discrimitory. Anyone, any age, any race, any shape or size, any language, any gender, anywhere, any hair color, any time, day or night. You get the picture, right?

Shuffle-walking-causer

Oblivious to how I may want my day to go.

Not very nice. No. Not at all.

Shaker-maker

 

Drool and depression inducer

Icky, icky, icky

Stiffness and slowness creator

Enhancer of humility in so very many, many ways

Apathy-maker

Subject to dystonia and dyskinesia and great dislike by its recipient

Exactly that aforementioned above and much more!

  1. Thank you for your blog and this post. My dad is 65 and has Parkinson’s. He was diagnosed about 2yrs ago and doctors feel he may have been living with it for 8years. Every post you publish speaks to me deeply. Thank you again
