The problem with doing well… a hidden disability

I have been open from almost the first day of diagnosis about my having Parkinson’s. I have shared it with my family and friends and also my colleagues at work. At first people were very sympathetic and it felt like they understood that I might be more challenged by things than previously. However, just likeContinue reading “The problem with doing well… a hidden disability”
