The Acid Test; went to Disneyland

We went to Disneyland for the first week of August; boy, what a test of my wellness and endurance!  I have a handicapped placard now, and the only time we used it was when we parked at Universal Studios on the one day we went there.  The rest of the time we walked.  We walked to the IHOP for breakfast, then to Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure where we walked all day, then we walked back to our hotel at night.  According to Bob's pedometer, we walked an average of 15 miles a day for 6 days!

And through all this, i felt great.  that's the bottom line; I have reached stability.  Thank goodness for medical science.  i can't imagine what hell people went through before we had medications and surgeries for parkinson's.

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.
