      Many Parkinson’s patient’s lose life-long hobbies to the disease. But one way to cope with the change is to find new hobbies. Maybe instead of playing darts, you could begin to fish. Instead of playing cards, it could be fun to join a singing group. What are some of your favorite Parkinsons-friendly hobbies? Why do you love them? And do you hope to explore future activities?

      I never painted before I got Parkinson’s (not unless you count finger painting in the fourth grade).  Now people have commented I could actually sell some of my work. To people who have been drinking heavily. No matter, I love doing it.

      Start out with acrylics. They’re inexpensive and forgiving. And a shaking hand becomes more steady when your arm is pressed against a canvas. A hundred bucks at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby will get you everything you need, including canvases. Go to you tube for tutorials.

      Parkinson’s  may take the away, but your hidden talents may giveth back.

      The disease has nearly destroyed my ability to print or to write in cursive. I am still able to communicate and write as a hobby by using the computer keyboard. I am thinking about spending up to $500 to get some Dragon software, but some of the reviews are awful, and there is a confusing array of Dragon products.
