  2. Good morning!!

    So true Dianne! PD has brought some unexpected good things into my life....life is different than I planned but it's still going to be a good one! Thanks for the reminder! LAD PS-JB- it was a crazy busy weekend and very emotional....but it was GREAT!
  3. Music and Parkinson's Disease

    Music & dancing are great!!! https://www.facebook.com/hopkinscmm/ https://www.google.com/amp/www.baltimoresun.com/health/bs-hs-music-and-medicine-20170518-story,amp.html LAD
  4. First take a breath.... Get a good MDS doctor Everyone is different-there are different options. That's why a good movement disorder specialist (MDS) is important. Start exercising if you don't already...there's lots of choices for PD specific programs. Exercise is one of your best tools to fight PD! I do a program called PWR (www.pwr4life.org) & my husband and I take dance lessons. Find something you enjoy doing. Take one day at a time...you will find what works for you. Welcome to the forum! LAD
  5. Good morning!!

    Big weekend in my corner of the world.... My oldest graduated from his Physician Assistant masters program and will sit for his boards certification later this month. My youngest finished his 23 production but it was the first as the lead. And to celebrate.... My middle son threw quite the party while we were out of town at the graduation. I still can't figure out how many people were in my house. It was relatively clean so I'm not going to investigate. Hope you all had a great weekend and here's to Monday being over!!! LAD
  6. Good morning!!

    Prayers to you Jb49! I am relatively new to the PD journey. I truly appreciate all the support and insights you all give myself and others. I am currently on an agonist and doing well with it. I am scared of the unknown and what the future holds but one of my favorite quotes from MJ FOX BELOW sums it up for me at this point in my life..I'm trying to fill the space with good things. Paece- LAD With Parkinson's, it's like you're in the middle of the street and you're stuck there in cement shoes and you know a bus is coming at you, but you don't know when. You think you can hear it rumbling, but you have a lot of time to think. And so you just don't live that moment of the bus hitting you until it happens. There's all kinds of room in that space

  8. Good morning!!

    3 years ago today I was getting a pre surgery nerve test done when the dr conducting the test said "I think you have PD" ... what a journey this has become...I'm glad I found this forum and this thread along the way! LAD

  10. Noah- I was in such a terrible place 3 years ago. You know since you read my story online...PD sucks but there are lots of things that are so much worse. to quote MJ Fox- With Parkinson's, it's like you're in the middle of the street and you're stuck there in cement shoes and you know a bus is coming at you, but you don't know when. You think you can hear it rumbling, but you have a lot of time to think. And so you just don't live that moment of the bus hitting you until it happens. There's all kinds of room in that space. I have my bus days but there is room for a great life. And there are lots of people in the street with me! Stay strong and stay hopeful. LAD
  11. Good morning!!

    JB- I have a Canada story....my husband & I first started dating on a cruise to throughout the st Lawrence seaway....it was s school trip that was supposed to be to France but too much political stuff was going on and the School said we count not go. However it was too late to cancel so 2 catholic sisters took about (20) 17/18 year olds on a cruise to French speaking countries. I don't think Sr Pat or Sr Judy were ever the same. On the bright side they came to our wedding 5 years later😊 I remember Quebec being beautiful and on my list to go Back! LAD
  12. Good morning!!
