We didn't use the word Parkinson's all day last Saturday
THE THORP REPORT: Our past six months in Dearborn

I hope my friends and family watch this video about Parkinson's


I'm not asking anybody to get out the violins because I have Parkinson's Disease.  However, I am asking for understanding and to do that some information is helpful.  Watch the above video.

It explains the basics of the disease and how it affects daily life.  As my speech has disappeared and my steps have gotten smaller and my balance has gotten problematic, I find myself feeling more and more isolated.  Going to the bathroom has become a major chore.

I have to force myself to want to go to he grocery store and other mundane life items.  This video helps explain what's going on.
