I have been married 27 years . We have 2 children,a boy 21, and a girl 17. 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 general activity. It is a bit of a chore due to trying to increase my motivation. It is great to find this web site and see how many are"just like me"
Both my husband and my dog 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 aPre much improved, but since PD I catch everything, I am going to Tai Chi 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(doing well) this will improve my overall health. Taking meds and managing my health has turned into a full time occupation.
