Another week has come and gone and in this house emotions have been running wild with all the frustrations and worry of living with a degenerative disease. Hearing from fellow Parkinson’s sufferers, and knowing others are experiencing the same symptoms and side effects of medications is comforting. However this does not alleviate my physical suffering, and this past week I must say, has pushed me pretty much to the limit. I am not one to make a fuss, but with Parkinson’s claws deeply set in my flesh, tearing my life apart and laughing at any dreams I might have of the future, it’s hard to find my smile and keep it upon my face.
I feel compelled to continue writing this blog, to log my journey with Parkinson’s in an honest and truthful manner, in the hope of spreading awareness about a disease that needs all the help it can get for people to truly understand how terrible it is. What will next week bring? I’ll just have to wait and see.
