HM1 US Navy Retired. Jokingly my friends thought I was having the (D.T'S) delirious tremors after a night of partying. My time as a hospital corpsman prepared me to put on my game face and suck up the pain. The Marines Semper Gumby attitude along with "It only hurts when I laugh" attitude is part of my learning to live with Parkinson's. Don't forget the home front of friends and family because no person is an island to themselves. They need your love just as they love you.
Basically I grew up as an Army brat in France, Germany, Virginia and Texas. When my dad retired I moved to Michigan, got bored with college and my dead end job. I joined the Army National Guard in high school but switched to the Navy in 1980. Two years later I got "married with children". Divorced and now I'm living with a wonderful lady. I finished my college degree while in the Navy. Half of my time was spent as 0000/8404 corpsman and the other half was a preventive medicine technician. I traveled all over the world and I would do it all over again. I worked 3 years after my Navy retirement until my unwanted house guest Parkinson's had other plans.
