Parkie n Tech

You know sometimes I wonder where i would be if we did not have the internet and now the social media where i get to share, make friends, join groups that have people who understand in a heartbeat what I am going through with Parkinson's...did not have that in 2004 when i was diagnosed.....spent a lonely and hellish few years...till i found blogging and video blogs and then facebook, though i joined PD related groups only a couple off years ago....Am so glad i did:)

Parkie and Life

I have spent almost eleven years with Parkinson's. Has been an interesting ride to say the least. Have been to hell and back several times over, have learnt several life's lessons, have come across some incredible people and some not so much, have learned to understand my body and am amazed at the new tricks my body can do like walking backwards, drunken walk, the stumble and fumble....but the most important thing I learned is tto try and have a positive attitude and a great sense of humor.....while this does not cure the condition, it makes it bearable , cos crying messes you up and laughter is good for you.....don't know where this journey will take me but hope to do it with a smile:)))
