      Reading about celebrities having PD is encouraging to me as I think it helps bring attention to Parkinson’s.  The more everyone knows about it, the better off we all are……and the more attention it gets, the more likely we’re going to have donations and research interest in finding a cure.  Additionally, it’s always interesting to hear how others, celebrities or not, are dealing with PD.

      Classification as an “athlete” might be too optimistic,  but I was consistently active before Parkinson’s diagnosis and I believe that has really helped me continue to be able to do most of the things I used to do.  I bowl, go to Jazzercise class 3 times a week, walk, and do  a number of active things.  Am able to physically do more than the typical woman my age(74) plus live in a two story home which requires multiple trips up and down stairs.

      I am grateful for the continuing ability to do what I want to do physically, even tho I may have to do it a little slower.  So far, balance and gait are not a problem for me. It makes such a difference to be able to move around at a decent speed and pace. I give credit to my Jazzercize classes for helping me stay stable and active.
