Parkies …. it’s no joke!

I was reading a post on a Parkinson’s Facebook page I belong to. It was on the subject of people making jokes about Parkinson’s. They said, “Recently Wendy asked a question about how to handle a thoughtless comment making fun of someone with PD in her presence when she has been recently diagnosed.” Sometimes it…

Medications and sickness

The last few days have been difficult ones as I unfortunately managed to get some kind of stomach bug. I have had three days of changing symptoms, all of which seemed like classic COVID symptoms. However, I have tested myself 3 x and have been clear. So the first day, I just felt really rotten…

Being honest and not always positive!

I read today another PD person’s Blog about feeling less than positive and her symptoms getting on top of her for the last few days or so. She is usually a very positive person, but she is having a bad run of it at present and she was apologising for writing a less than positive…

Sleep …Zzzzzz

I don’t know whether it is just a natural part of the ageing process, but I find that I can’t seem to go to bed early these days. It may be part of Parkinson’s perhaps, but I find if I go to bed before about 11.00pm I stay awake for much longer. It also helps…

If you care, will you go into care?

I was reading a post by someone on a Facebook Page for people with Parkinson’s and their carers tonight. It was posted by the daughter of someone who has Parkinson’s and whose husband has become her carer. Both parents are in their 80’s. Doctors have recommended that the Mother with Parkinson’s needs to go into…

Freedom

What does freedom mean to me? It is the ability to do what I want and be who I want. To be able to make my own decisions. It is about being able to do things for myself and to gain satisfaction in doing so. It is also about being able to go where I…
