I have been married 23 years . We have 2 children,a boy 18, and a girl 14. I am a RN,with Parkinsons. I quit work in 2010,and am on disability but keep busy as a stay home mom. I try to stay healthy with walking, and swimming, It is great to find this web site and see how many are"just like me" The picture is of 2 of my most important men, my husband Jeff and my dog, Rudy. Both are a huge source of help and encouragement to me. I had DBS 4/2008 and take about 60% of my previous medication. Activity levels are much improved, but since PD I catch everything, I am learning to play guitar and I love photography, books, birdwatching, the mountains of Colorado. I learned that I have a large number of allergies and I hope that by taking allergy shots(just started) this will improve my overall health.
