    Parkinson’s is a word...not a sentence. I intend to have many Screw PD moments and to kick some PD ass for a very long time. (I am with Stump!) LAD

    Trekking pole walking

    I have started pole walking. It’s quite challenging. It’s a coordination workout with cardio. It also helps your balance, posture & gait. Try it!!! LAD

    Guessing you could use ski poles but trekking poles are adjustable and have flat feet. Try what you have & see. LAD

    10 good years???

    Every person is different. Exercise and stay active.... research changes things all the time. Treatments may be different 5 years from now. I refuse the accept a timeline unless it’s about tomorrow. Guess I’m naive but I don’t have a “good years “ plan. And what’s the definition of “good?” PD changes your life but it’s still your life just different. My last blog post was called Give & Take.....PD does take things but it gives you things you never expected And they are not all bad. https://ladpdjourney2.wordpress.com/ Stay strong & stay hopeful LAD

    Welcome to the club

    You will probably get the universal parkinson's disease rating scale test at Hopkins. I have had it for the research studies and at my appointments. It’s pretty thorough and challenging. I get really competitive with my scores: we have been researching freezing....think of a song with a beat ... rock Back and forth... look at an object in front of you .... use a side step motion ... good luck!
