Accident vs Medical Event…
It is difficult sometimes to do the work that I do and to see the huge impact that a major health event has on the patients and families I do my best to support. Most of the people who are admitted to the Ward are under 65 years of age. There are a few exceptions,…Keep reading
A Nanna baking day!
Well, today I felt like doing something useful with my time, as I still have a very sore leg if I walk about too much. I decided to do some baking while my husband went for a nice long walk. Lucky bugger! So, this Nanna got out her Nanna’s recipes for shortbread and marshmallow cake.…Keep reading
Kia Kaha – stay strong
Kia kaha is a Māori phrase used by the people of New Zealand as an affirmation, meaning stay strong. As I write my Blog and put my thoughts and feelings down, I hope as always that those that follow me find some benefit in identifying with my journey.

I am a more emotional being since Parkies!
I think I have always been a reasonably emotional person but have noticed very much that since Parkies has come into my life, that I am definitely more so. Not that I wasn’t a caring person before, but I think that things matter so much more for me now. I have been a more prolific…Keep reading
I found this definition of Collective Wisdom and I think it illustrates the point of this post very nicely. “Collective wisdom, also called group wisdom and co-intelligence, is shared knowledge arrived at by individuals and groups.” I went along to something that was referred to as a “Workshop” last night and I’m afraid it fell…Keep reading

We had been looking forward to a concert by The Proclaimers and attended it last night. The concert was incredible, with lots of memorable songs that we all knew and some new ones from their latest album. However, there was one thing that really got on my nerves!

I am grateful…
A Parkinson’s Facebook Page that I am on asked the question ‘what are you grateful for?’ One thing I love about that page is the sense of community and positivity that it gives us all. Sometimes, while we are working our way through life with a degenerative condition, it is all too easy to focus…Keep reading
A life with purpose… what will I be remembered for?
I think I have always been someone who, from an early age wanted to help and support people. I have had a lots of ups and downs in life, both in relationships and with my health. I have had depression, I’ve recovered and I’ve headed towards depression again in this life. I am happy to…Keep reading
