"I want Parkinson's just like you have!"
But to be clear, Parkinson’s doesn’t have me.
It has been almost 15 years since my formal diagnosis. Like everyone else I have good days and better days. My goal is to have more better days. I can’t believe I’ve used “more better” in a sentence.
So how do I deal with Parkinson’s? In my book I call it a gift. It has given me a voice and a purpose. So follow my blog if you need inspiration, and/or information.
For the past two years I have been taking a yoga class once a week, and I do a Chi Gong routine in the morning. But I need more activity, so I was interested in the Dancing with Parkinson’s program offered through Decidedly Jazz Danceworks.
I approached them with the idea of promoting the program in conjunction with my book launch. I am certainly not a poster child for dance – but if I can help in some small way to raise awareness, and promote more research then count me in. My launch is happening at Loft 112 on the evening of Tuesday, June 10th. Details here. I'd love to see you there!
A lady at the dance class said to me, “I want Parkinson’s just like you have.” Follow along. It is not contagious but it is catching!
