During these uncertain times, now seemed the right time to share with you some words that might be of help. As we all are at home during this outbreak, I know I’m thinking about and discovering how to get back to a routine that I can keep. It isn’t easy with constant distractions. The refrigerator constantly trying to lure me, the phone ringing with robocalls, trying to work, and timing my medications – all at once – they all pull at me!
Listen to the Audio Series
So, for the next four weeks, I will be sharing a chapter from my audio book, A Soft Voice in a Noisy World – A Guide to Dealing and Healing with Parkinson’s Disease that I think might be helpful. This week’s chapter is about dealing with timing in Parkinson’s.
Timing is Important
Timing your medicine, your diet, your exercise, your sleep, and your work are a challenge that takes some self-discovery. Click the play button below to hear voice actor/narrator, Doug Gochman read Chapter 15 of my book, to get some ideas on timing:
“Keeping up on a simple daily regimen can feel like a full-time job in itself, and the longer you have this illness the more you’ll recognize the importance of being diligent in monitoring how you’re body is reacting to your medicines.“Karl Robb, A Soft Voice in a Noisy World

Based on recent events, I have encountered and spoken with a variety of people from around the United States in the Parkinson’s disease (PD) community who have unfulfilled needs and are in need of unmet specific resources. Local, state, and federal agencies can only do so much and PD organizations are doing the best that they can to assist the growing need.
I would like to take a very unscientific poll of readers of this blog and ask you flat out- What one need concerning Parkinson’s disease do you feel needs to be addressed (not to mention research or a cure) in the PD community? After a few weeks, I will summarize the results of this poll. Please send your answer via email (not by post and responses are confidentil) to email@example.com
