parkinson’s is much more than a shaking hand... parkinson’s is a thief and a liar. He breaks into your brain and enters your soul where he can rob you of hope, he can take your dreams and ruin your future. He can take your joy and your reason to get up in the morning. no matter how hard you try to stop him - he will eventually find an unlocked window and get into your house and take your stuff. All you can do is slow him down.
I constantly have to tell myself to be positive - and that’s a lot of work- a few minutes ago I was at the bottom of my mood tank - running on fumes - then a message popped up from someone I don’t really know yet - they told me how much they are enjoying my CD - that filled up my tank. But angels like that aren’t always going to be there to rescue me.
I must learn how to fill up my own tank. I thought I knew how; I did. But, the location of the filler-up thingamajig keeps changing. That parkinson’s guy is one clever devil - but so am I - ANJ
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
