What have i missed?


#1
Wow i haven't been on the forum for a while, to be honest i found the some of the topics quite deep and played on my mind! Instead i have been getting on with life, trying new ways of living with this dreadful illness. I've just had my 6month check up with my neurologist and came home feeling upbeat and positive i just wish others felt the same! It seems i have missed a great deal but i recon i would be stressed and angry if i had stayed! Instead i'm starting the gym, planning Christmas, learning new hobbies and meeting long lost friends and making the most of everyday!

Maybe i'll pop on now and then but please introduce some light hearted topics.....please

It is good to hear that things are going well for you. It's probably more accurate to say that you are making things go well by being positive and active.
I don't know how long you were away but there have been some uplifting things here recently.
There is a new London based social group for people with interest in Parkinson's and it was advertised here amongst other places. There was an excellent research conference in York last week which featured various forum members cunningly disguised as normal people, the creative corner continues to show that there is plenty of intelligent life to be found in these parts. All that is above and beyond the most obvious function of the forum which is to provide an anonymous and open area for people new to Parkinson's to get some help to understand how to deal with it.
and there is more
we have our own superheroine. Jellywoman shrugged off her disguise as Katesmum and is campaigning to ensure that wrong doers get their just desserts, oh sweet revenge!

I am new to the forum & all I can say is I have been helped mentally just knowing that there are others out there who actually know how I feel! I have only received positive feedback and such kind & encouraging words from people like Elegant Fowl (sorry, I cannot remember so many other names)who have helped me feel so much better!:grin:
Kind regards
