Since being diagnosed with Parkinsons 13 years ago I have made many friends from all avenues of life, who have given me support and put themselves out to help me when needed.
This is one of the positive aspects of having Parkinsons, the only one? may be - the one that keeps my spirits up.
Hence the following:-
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my work colleagues over the past twelve years
Who have given me support, usually with laughter but sometimes with tears.
In the early days it was plain to see you thought "she's a strange one, that L McP.
You know my idiosyncrasies and carry my tea
And when asked to, ....do the Parky shuffle with me.
A welcome arm, a friendly word, an office chair to give me pace,
I am going to fight you Parky and win this bl**dy race.
