I am invincible!

Diagnosis day is here again.  It was five years ago today when I heard the words "Parkinson's disease" from my neurologist.  I was worried then about where I would be in five years, how much I would have to give up, what I wouldn't be able to do.  Well, it turns out that I have had to give up exactly NOTHING.  I can still do whatever I want to do, I just do it a little slower because it's harder to do.  Everything I do is a little victory, every day is a triumph, so how can I complain?

What a great report-to know you continue to live-maybe a little slower, but you're doing it! So great, encouraging to all of us who have to choose to persevere through physical struggles and enjoy the one life we have:) You're an inspiration.

thanks Robin! I always said that my stubborn streak would come in handy someday!

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.
