Thank you for your interest in my journey. I was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson's Disease in November 2013. I started this blog in 2014 at 50 years old as a diary to be able to record my journey. My life has been filled with twists and turns.
Born out of a life of continuous trauma, my motor symptoms are being driven by a disconnect between my central nervous system and my poorly wired brain. I've never been able to make sense of Parkinson's. Nine years and 18,000 dopamine tablets later I was told I was misdiagnosed. "You have Functional Neurological Disorder". That was another misdiagnosis. It seems like its never going to end.
Read my blog to follow the journey into PD and out of FND. A drama that began as a bad nightmare that now seems to be miraculously headed toward a happy ending. My mantra has always been: "NEVER GIVE UP. NEVER GIVE IN". The Universe has heard my pleas and will it grant my wish?
Whether you are PD, FND or any other movement disorder, as a patient, caregiver, or health professional - I encourage you to connect with me (or someone close to you) with this heartfelt advice:
