  1. that would be right because it takes me about 20-25 minutes to get to Shrewsbury from my house
  2. Sorry I guess I cross over just past shrewsbury, PA....I take 83 the whole way into MD. Takes me 40 minutes to get to Hunt Valley. That help LAD
  3. Yep...83 south
  4. Crazy me in my Parkinson wellness recovery class! not very Ginger Rogers but I didn't fall on my butt!
  5. Ginger is about 30 minutes from MD line. And you Linda?
  6. Linda - we are not far from each other- I'll roadtrip to see you- maybe we meet in pairs- anyone close to each other?! LAD
  7. Everyone is different. Get a good MDS to get the answers you need. Be present in your life. PD or no PD you are doing well - embrace that! Exercise- it's good for you...again PD or no PD. It's great for anxiety too! Good luck! LAD
  8. Ditto..... Well said DaveN
  9. So two exercise classes today-one aerobics & one weight training. I had some crazy tremors but once they stopped I had a great day.... intense exercise = crazy temporary tremors = great day I think I am ok with that! LAD
  10. Found it
  11. Hope you are still exercising! LAD
  12. Guess we need a central location?! Guessing JB is the farthest away! Me-PA
  13. Maybe we should go with Fred & Ginger....that's our Halloween gig LAD
  14. Roadtrip! Does anyone know where are we going to find Pathfinder and her banana bread?
  15. As a 45 year old mom of 3 boys and a YOPD....I understand your fears. It's incredibly overwhelming and there is a whole process of emotions but your family will be ok. It may not seem like it right at this moment, but eventually PD becomes part of your life. You can't control the fact that it has become part of your life, but you can control how you respond to it. It is not all sunshine and roses but it's not gloom and doom either. Exercise is key. A PD specific one is beneficial. There are lots of programs...educate yourselves and pick one that works. When I was DX, one doctor recommended dancing. My husband and I now take ballroom dance lessons. We even go to formals now...gown & tux. Never in a million years would I had guessed we would ever take dance lessons. As much as I feared things PD would take from us, I never thought it would bring us something but it did. And when we are busting a move in the living room, I forget I have PD. My kids are older than yours but I think they are more aware that anyone may be fighting a battle that you cannot see and they have definitely learned what it means to be married and love unconditionally. PD was not in the plan. Life will be different but it can still be great. PD does not define me, it's a part of who I am now. I have learned to be present - seize the day. Eat ice cream for breakfast with your toddler. I just listened to a webinar on the Michael J Fox foundation. It was about YOPD. It was very informative but not overwhelming. You can find it on their website under webinars. Good luck and welcome to the forum. LAD
  16. Hope your visit went well. I know it's hard but give yourself time to adapt and adjust. LAD
  17. I got it too. Reported & deleted. Thx- I was worried I was the only one. Thanks admin for the quick responses
  18. My jaw starts to tremor at the dentist I warn them them dint have too long. I have hiking poles I use to hike but they have rubber bottoms so the can be used anywhere and they are collapsing. Compact to carry. My mom had a stroke recently so she's using them. Good of day all! LAD
  19. Noah were you able to get the picture? LAD
  20. Nothing PD just fun
  21. Ditto on the good luck jp! Em- I have one graduating from grad school in August. He has boards to pass but he has accepted a job already 😊 My other two may kill me before I get to the graduation though...two car accidents in s month- two different sons and two different cars. Everyone except the grill of the minivan is fine which is what matters. Good day all! LAD
  22. my boys read every one of the Captain Underpants books...must admit...they were entertaining
  23. got an email from admin...she was banned and I deleted the message
