Hey everyone! Hope you’re all staying safe out there. Anyone have any creative activity ideas for quarantine?
On that note, I wanted to share Sherri’s latest column here. She writes about stopping the spread of loneliness during this time. Combatting loneliness can be hard enough for Parkinson’s patients on a regular basis. Now with the COVID-19 crisis, it’s even more difficult.
Still, I hope you can find some comfort from Sherri’s piece. Speaking as someone who has another rare disease and went on lockdown early, I’ve found solace in things like video calls with friends and family. I’m not a fan of the term “social distancing,” because even though we can’t see people in person right now, we need to stay connected. Virtual communication makes that possible.
