Hello world

When a programmer runs a program for the first time, the first function they sometimes have the program perform is called a "hello world".  It's just a way to show that the program is "alive" and not stuck in a loop somewhere.  Well, that's what this is for me.  Since I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2006, I feel that my life has been stuck in a series of endless loops; when I get out of one, I fall into the next one.  Now, though, I think I finally have debugged my code and become functional again.  I feel so lucky; my medication works very well for me, I have the support of my husband and my family, and I've discovered a wonderful online community of fellow sufferers who inspire and amaze me every day.

Hello World.

About Me

I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
