To be diagnosed with Parkinson’s means a new opportunity to re- evaluate life, it’s directions and purpose. Not a chance to turn into a mute, dumb zombie that doesn’t interact with others with Parkinson’s and wallows in self pity.
To survive the Parkinson’s journey we all need each other. We need constant knowledge of all the aspects of the disease. To have knowledge is power over the disease as we will have knowledge to deal with whatever comes our way as it developed over time.
Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s is not a death sentence nor will you die of Parkinson’s.
If we just sit there not getting involved in groups on Facebook. Not Listening to Shaky Radio and all the information from various podcasts. Then we are going to rot in ignorance and poverty of knowledge vital to our well being and joy in living well with Parkinson’s.
We are all in this together. If we are not together then we are lost wandering with no direction.
The ultimate goal of all of us is the discovery of a cure. To achieve this we need to be one working towards the best solutions of research and achieving this goal. How can this happen if we ignore each other and even worse fight with each other.
So let’s give ourselves a kick and wake ourselves up and get more active in the Parkinson’s community. Don’t be the zombie, break free and joy and happiness you will see.
