It feels like starting over...with Neurologist number three

I’m hard on the medical profession. Since 2013, I’ve gone through three primary care physicians, four therapists and two dermatologists. It’s not always my fault. A few of them left for better jobs in different fields. It’s just a coincidence that they made these life changes after meeting and treating me. After each change, it... Read more »

April is a big month in the Parkinson's Disease community. We aim to make it smaller.

April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month. Yesterday was World Parkinson’s Day for 2021. This blog started almost nine years ago as a way to document how a relatively new diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease could and would affect someones everyday life activities.

Michael J. Fox outlived Rush Limbaugh. Is it karma?

Michael J. Fox outlived Rush Limbaugh. Is it karma?
Karma: the result of a person’s actions as well as the actions themselves. It is a term about the cycle of cause and effect.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
