I think there are certain things that only another Parkinson's patient can fully appreciate and understand, one of which is, simply getting out of bed in the morning. This has to be the hardest action of the day for me, and probably to a healthy individual, sounds pretty pathetic. But trust me, if you were in my shoes (or should I say house slippers) one morning, you would immediately comprehend how incredibly painful and difficult it is to get out of bed after a night's sleep. If you could magically experience this for just one day, I don't think you would ever again take for granted, how you simply get out of bed each morning without a second thought.
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.

The hardest thing each day
