Caution! Covid!

I have not written in a while. I honestly should begin everything with that sentance. I have excuses. We always have those too.  This week I have the best excuse, I have had Covid. Yes. It finally happened. Here’s my experience of Covid-19 and Parkinson’s. I have to begin by stating that I had been … Read more

On We Go

Sometimes I find it easy to think of stuff for the blog. It flows out of me and I can barely type fast enough. I tried dictating once, but the thoughts don’t flow so well. I hope I can continue to type as well as I do for some time. Well, forever really. Who wants … Read more

Living in Fear With Parkinson’s

Here we are. One week on from World Parkinson’s Day. What has changed? Well here in New Zealand Autumn is well and truly upon us. The colder days are interspersed with beautiful warm sunny days but chill from late afternoon. We’re lighting our fires in the evening and snuggling down with our families. Being honest … Read more

Jusr Another Awareness Day

It’s almost World Parkinson’s Day. It’s something big on my calendar yet I’m sure to most people it’s ‘just another awareness day.’ In the six years I have had this disease I have seen the Covid-19 pandemic sweep the world and an effective vaccination program created and rolled out worldwide.  Yet the drugs I am … Read more

No Thanks For The Memories

Good old Facebook, always there, ready to surprise you with that memory option. I was going to write about feminism, nothing to do with Parkinson’s at all. I can hear some sighs already. Don’t worry. Facebook put paid to that as it reminded me six years ago I visited the hospital for the first time … Read more

Resistance is Futile

I like early mornings. Which is lucky, because I get a lot of them, being woken up with an aching leg. That I’m not so keen on. I also like late nights, I’ve always been a night owl,  but a steady mix of work, early mornings and child-care is slowly putting paid to the later … Read more

Friends Forever

I have been ruminating on much. I often do. Then I think,  “I’ll write that for the blog!” yet I don’t. Writing for a blog is great. It’s cathartic and all that. Yet it too can become a chore. Well, it can when you think that you have to write about a specific subject. In … Read more

Progression

I was recently asked what the progression of parkinson’s was like. I had to think about it for some time. I replied truthfully, if perhaps not acurately. I replied with my truth, which may not be entirely satisfactory from a medical point of view, yet I feel is still valid. I told my friend that … Read more

Whispering Voices

Here I am on the rocks at Makara Beach near Wellington in New Zealand. We came out here for a day trip. Mr D’s Dad has a bach out there and he goes out most weeekends to sit on the deck and watch the world go by. It goes by pretty slowly. There’s not much there … Read more
