So, Parkinson’s is a bit of a weird condition. You don’t know whether it’s affecting you mentally as well as physically. Obviously, being given a such a diagnosis plays havoc with your plans for the future, changes your priorities, affects how you Think of yourself and others.
What you don’t have however, is any way to gauge perspective – who could possibly understand it from your viewpoint? I know support groups are valuable but I still firmly hold to the concept of self reliance. When it comes down to it, you have to be able to look after yourself don’t you? And that’s what I’m trying to do at the moment.
So I might be a little quieter than normal, I might be a little abbreviated for a while. I’m OK, but I’m following my resolution to Choose Life and that takes time. Stick with me though, I’m not disappearing. Promise.
