It’s been about two weeks now since I had the misfortune of throwing myself onto the ground from my racey red e-bike. It is certainly not something I ever wish to do again! I have given myself some time for the bruising to heal and so have not gone to the gym, gone to AquarobicsContinue reading “Getting back into life…”

Here we go again…
So, on Friday last week I met with my community Speech Language Therapist. She works from the same hospital that I do, so I have seen her often around the hospital. We have also previously had some sessions in the rental property we lived in before we bought our new home. We had a bitContinue reading “Here we go again…”
How do I ‘do life’ and not focus on Parkinson’s?
I try my best to be positive and to do as many things as I can to give me the best chance of a good life as someone with Parkinson’s. A Psychologist I work with once said to me that I shouldn’t make my life all about Parkinson’s. Easy for her to say, but difficultContinue reading “How do I ‘do life’ and not focus on Parkinson’s?”
Group Fitness – So unlike me!
I have been trying for some time to work out what works for me in the way of exercise. I have started at the local gym and am happy to go there 2-3 days per week, depending on my work, my life and general commitments. At least 2 days should be achievable. Tonight I decidedContinue reading “Group Fitness – So unlike me!”
So, tonight I went to the gym as well as last night, as I have a busy week this week and couldn’t go on my usual nights which will be mainly on a Monday and Thursday. One thing I have learned from this, is that I need a recovery day in between. I didn’t doContinue reading “Exercise increasing…”

Training for life – Day 3
So, after a busy day at work I met with my new trainer at 3.30pm. We went through the first half of the programme that I am going to be working on. The gym is starting to feel like a comfortable space now. The people who work there are friendly and so far the peopleContinue reading “Training for life – Day 3”
Parkinson’s is a Disease….?
What is a ‘Disease’ by definition? I have tried Dr Google and one response is as follows: ‘Any abnormal condition of the body or part of it, arising from any cause‘. However, to me to label Parkinson’s as a ‘Disease’ infers to me different meanings. I have always thought of something or someone as diseasedContinue reading “Parkinson’s is a Disease….?”
Training for life – Day 2
Firstly, let me say that I am not going to post about every day I have at the gym. That could become tedious for all concerned! But I thought I might post perhaps for the first week or first seven days – not necessarily consecutively – on how I am finding my return to theContinue reading “Training for life – Day 2”
