So, I’ve been on this form on and off for the last 10 years but here I am again signing on - I know now that I have to take responsibility for managing my Parkinson’s because it’s got to the point now where if I don’t, I am going to be severely hampered in my life. Mentally I’m OK physically it’s getting worse and yes I know there are so many things I could do to make myself better. And the rest of my body still seem to protest… At the moment I’m dealing with an infection in my jaw, arthritis in my foot, just had an operation on my hand &I divorce caused by my darling husband not understanding what it is like to have a degenerative disease and how much it makes you want to grab your life and then there are my two very demanding but fantastic boys.
Life is never easy for any of those I know and most of the time I can be quite positive and some people say that I inspired them. God I’m so so so tired and I just want something to happen to make me feel better. And so I decided to join Here again because I figure that if I can talk to you guys we can help each other and hopefully that will drag me out of this pain. Because Self-pity isn’t going to get me anywhere is it?
I am 48 now, I was 36 when I was diagnosed. I have two children, one ex-husband, two cats and one amazing new boyfriend . My challenge is to grab this disease with both mitts & managing into submission
