I have lived with Parkinson’s since my diagnosis in 2012 when I suffered a severe side effect from the anesthesia given in my back surgery. Typical of Parkinson’s, I suffered through 21 days before they figured out what was going on and brought a neurologist to make the proper diagnosis. It was a diagnosis of exclusion given when all else had been eliminated. Since then it has been the pink elephant in the room with regard to my condition and every decision that I make regarding where I live and whether I drive. I was able to medically control the Parkinson’s until recently when I underwent DBS surgery which was an adventure in itself.

If you’re feeling lost and overwhelmed then drop me a line to talk to some one who has been there, done that.
