How to explain Parkinson's to the uninitiated

Hello my name is Sherry. Before I go into all sorts of things I just wanted to let you know that I had an article published by you in your online magazine. It created a lot of awareness so I was thrilled. My physio encouraged me to write a blog, which I must say is quite interesting and gives me something to focus on whilst I try to improve my mobility.
I noticed that you are advertising in your other magazine for people to start a blog and wondered if I could link mine to that in some way. I have been doing mine for 3 weeks or so, not every day but quite regularly.
I look forward to hearing from you.

My explanation is a simple analogy the majority of the uk population would understand

  1. Imagine I am England
  2. On my right I have the M6
    3 On my left is the M1
  3. Now when both roads are working everything goes as normal
    5 But with me, some bright spark has placed randomised traffic lights, on the M6 SO…iEverything can stop without warning

Hello Reah

I haven’t heard anything definite one way or the other as to whether I can join my blog to Parkinson’s. I have got over 700 viewings and am seriously thinking of turning it into a book. Several people have mentioned this. Would Parks be able to help me on this at all, any advice etc. would b e welcome.

Hi Geordieparr

What a lovely explanation of Parkinson’s. I will certainly be trying it out when I describe PD to the “muggles”


Thank you, problem is they are driving on the A69 to start on the A1
