State of Independence

If you rummage around your life, opening the drawers and lifting the cushions you will find swipe cards everywhere. They give you access to everything in your life; the many doors you go through; the friendships you have; the abilities you cherish; the places you go. The swipe of those cards gives you independence.

The problem with Parkinson’s is that it begins to cancel the swipe cards you have scattered around your life so when you come to use them access is denied. This is the frustration of the disease. However, you may have an old fashioned key to open some doors or by accepting help other people will use their compatible swipe cards to let you in.

Certain doors will be closed to you but keeping hold of your curiosity and continuing to explore your life, you may find new swipe cards and new doors you never knew existed.
