Cognitive Competence

I have always been someone who has loved words. I even have favourite words like ‘penultimate’ and ‘serendipity’. I have always been quite articulate in the use of words and able to express myself. I have worked in radio previously – many years ago – as a co-host on a breakfast show and had to…

Will you hold my hand?

Not sure if I’ve shared this poem before, but I quite like it so thought I would share today. I shared it on a Parkies Facebook page that I follow that was asking people to share their talent, their arts and crafts. My Mother was a bit of an artist and my home is home…

Mum and Dad…

Writing my Blog tonight and then sitting in my spa pool listening to music with a glass of red wine. Trying to de-stress and lift my low mood. Then I got to thinking about my Mum and Dad, who both also had Parkinson’s. I have encouraged my children to read my Blog, so that they…

I think more and more as I grow older, that I need a sense of community surrounding me. Particularly, now with Parkinson’s I want to be part of something that has caring at its centre. A feeling of belonging and being in a place that’s right for me and right for my husband. Living in…

It’s not all about me…

Strange to say, but ‘It’s not all about me’ this Blog is a part of the story of my life in my journey with Parkinson’s, but it is also about my family. With the weekend coming up, I had made plans to have my three grand-daughters to stay for the weekend. They are 13 year…

Is it ‘PD’ or not ‘PD’?

This condition seems to come with a myriad of different symptoms and pain. It feels like every time I turn around something new hurts. I can’t seem to get a break from it and at times it can be quite demoralizing. About a month ago – maybe more – I started getting pain in the…

The poem…

I tried to write a poem But my mind just has a blank I tried to write a poem There’s no words in the tank I tried to write a poem The sort of one that rhymes I tried to write a poem And tried to several times I tried to write a poem A…
