I find, as I'm sure any woman with Parkinson's will agree, that putting on a necklace or bracelet with tiny clasps is tedious, frustrating and a near impossible feat. Having to constantly rely on others to help with the smallest of tasks, when coming across something that can be of help, no matter how small, I wanted to share it with you. I found recently a necklace that can also be worn as a bracelet by wrapping it several times around one's wrist, made of beads interspersed with little attractive magnets. No clasps required, no fiddling, the string of pretty colours just attaches by itself, making it easy to put on and wonderfully easy to remove. This magnetic jewellery comes in several different colours, and immediately I could see its versatility - particularly relevant when having little dexterity in ones fingers.
I have been writing poetry and stories since I was a child, and a love of reading was instilled in me from an early age. I am passionate about writing, and hope you enjoy the books I have written. Whilst most of you sleep soundly in your beds, like many Parkinson’s patients, insomnia dictates, so during those hours that sleep eludes me, the house is tranquil and quiet, an atmosphere perfect to immerse myself in writing. My life has been a series of strange events, which have without doubt contributed to my creativity. To publish anything is to bear one’s soul to the world. It is to stand naked and let everyone see who you really are. I have poured my heart and soul out on paper and I hope to share this journey, immersing you in a story, capturing your attention and firing the imagination. Through my writing and public speaking I hope to bring greater awareness to the general public about living with chronic disease.
