Hello fellow travellers I have been reading and exploring this wonderful site and feel it is now time to introduce myself to the other folk on the Parkinson Train.
I have carried Parkinson; the free loader for 8 years and it is something I will NEVER come to terms with. I mean how can any one get use to the weight of this nasty encumbrance when it slowly takes controls of your whole body and mind.
I have some disgusting additions to my PD for example the depression that has come with Parkinson. I often feel like I am part of a bad advertising gig. You know for only $ 4.99 your can enjoy the complete Parkinson condition. Remember folks only $4.99 its an absolute bargain but wait there is more for another $1.99 you can have Depression! Yes that’s right only another $1.99 and there is more, you don’t have to spend another cent we will throw in constipation and no taste or smell as a bonus
Don’t wait place your order NOW
I am enjoying reading the “names” many of us have bestowed upon our unwelcome illness. I have named my parasite, Mr Parkie in fact I have noted many deviations of the name Parkinsons: i.e. Parky, Parks. Mr Parkie a name that must offend my computer as every time I type Mr Parkie in the computer it changes the name to Mr Perkie. Perkie, by name but not by nature.
I would like to compile a list of names that others call their illness. If this has already been done can someone please direct me to the list so I could add mine.
