The most beneficial action that you can make in your life is to take charge and get as healthy as you can.
February 23, 2021 marked the 30th anniversary of my official diagnosis for having Young Onset Parkinson’s disease (YOPD).
After over a quarter of a century of advocating to Congress about the benefits of telehealth, your doctor visit by video has become a reality out of sheer necessity.
Almost every Parkinson’s disease conference that I have ever attended, over these 30 years of going to symposiums, lectures, and meetings, almost all of them had a an associated tee shirt.
I am 53 years old and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 23. I have made it my mission to provide Parkinson’s awareness. Thirty plus years with Parkinson’s has taught me a great deal about living well with this chronic condition.
If you are complaining about being sequestered at home, be grateful that you have a home and a place to reside through this craziness.
It is my hope that we choose to share compassion and kindness, in this time of need. This is our opportunity to reunify our nations and the entire planet.
Thinking that you are flexible and easy-going can be dramatically different until, you are challenged. Life has a way of sneaking in unexpected setbacks that knock your feet out from under you.
I am back, after taking almost a month-long adventure-road trip to Key West and back to Northern Virginia. For about 3 weeks, Angela, Lily, the Chocolate Lab, and I explored the Southeast coast and sucked up the warm breezes, compelling sunsets, and miles of open road.
The reality is that a well-run support group offers camaraderie, information, and a wisdom that comes from so many, all in one place. When you find a good group, it feels like another family and a place that you belong.
It’s a new year and the thought of those resolutions on the club napkin are but distant memories. Seriously, resolutions can be wonderful intentions yet only to create a burden that wasn’t the intention in the first place.
Wishing all ASoftVoice.com readers a very Happy Holiday Season! From Karl Robb:
Being Thankful On the morning of this chilly windy Thanksgiving day, I want to express
Epic sports comeback stories are reminders for us all that sometimes the underdog wins. When in the face of adversity, when pressed, the team that you discount will surprise you and overcome the odds.
I treasure the wonderful camaraderie of pride and love for humanity that shone for that gorgeous but ever so brief moment in time.
