A friend of mine who has Parkinson's is going through a rough patch at the moment and I think anyone suffering PD can relate to the emotional and physical turmoil we endure when our present state is compromised. My friend is a wonderful woman with great strength of character, sparkling eyes that reveal her marvellous sense of humour and like me, she has a fighting spirit. I'm sure you would all join me in wishing her well, and hope she'll soon be able to put this difficult period behind her. I write today's blog in her honour and hope it brings a smile to her face.
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.
