Well, I've gone and done it now. I won the Parkinson's Disease Foundation t-shirt contest (tied for the win, anyway) and now our local paper, the Half Moon Bay Review is doing an article about it for Parkinson's Disease Awareness month. I gave a phone interview yesterday, and today they're taking my picture. I don't have the PDF t-shirt in hand yet, so I'm going to wear the one I designed for the Patients Like Me Parkinson's Unity Walk team, and bring a picture of the PDF one.
This is way out of my comfort zone; I'm terrified. I don't know why. This is what I've been trying to do; raise awareness, help put a face on the disease for those who haven't been touched by it. It's very scary, though, for some reason. I'm just going to square my shoulders and do it, though. So there, Mr. Parkinson!
