Good morning, friends! I woke up to the most amazing surprise in my email; it shocked me straight awake. It was from the founder of Feedspot.com, the RSS Feed for bloggers. informing me that my blog has been named one of the TOP 50 PARKINSONS BLOGS on the web today. Click here to see their full story: http://blog.feedspot.com/parkinson_blogs/
The founder, Anuj Agarwal wrote: "I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 50 Parkinson Blogs on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!" To say this is a shock is way understating how I feel at the moment.

I know I need to breathe, but am having a bit of a hard time doing that. Isn't it funny and incredibly humbling when your life changes in a nanosecond? Synchronicity still thinks I have a way to go before I am perfectly in balance so I give up my control and let the Universe keep re-arranging. Friends, we are on the ride of our lives.
Thank you to Anuj and his crew for this honor. Thank you God for my life every single day. I have a beautiful life I would not trade for anything with beautiful loves and angels surrounding me at all times. Amen.

Hi everyone! Exciting news to share...... I have been invited to be a guest on The Parkinson's Radio Hour here in South Florida on Thursday, February 25th from 6-7pm on AM station 1470. Its a 50,000 megawatt station that broadcasts to a population of more than 6,000,000 people. (Not scary at all!)
The interview topic is "Issues and Solutions for Early On-Set Parkinson Disease" and I will be interviewed by host, Jeff Dowd, along with University of Miami Movement Disorder Neurologist, Dr. Henry Moore. My doctors are part of the same U of M system, coincidentally.
I was recommended to the show's producer. The person who recommended me told them that I live with PD with a positive attitude and that I inspire others with and without PD. I have no idea who the person is but thank you for your kind words and I am so happy that you are inspired by me or my story. That is my mission, for sure. To make sure that all who don't have PD appreciate the stillness they don't even know they possess and to make sure that all who do have PD seek out the forms of treatment they need and that work for them. There are so many resources today there is no reason at all to suffer. If you are suffering with it or know someone who is, their mind is playing tricks with them and they don't realize there is a way out. It is up to you as their friend or caregiver to get them the help they need. Remember that when I slip back "into" Parkinson's that I don't realize that it has happened. I need my husband to say "its time" to see my doctor for a tune-up of my medications or to check my progress. He can see when I'm becoming lost; I can't - and neither can your friend or loved one. I'm hoping that my story helps just one person to be better, feel better, live better. Then this journey I've been on has been worth it.
If you can't listen in, the show is available afterwards on podcast. I will get you that address. This show was aired on a different station and those past programs are available at http://wbzt.iheart.com/media/podcast-parkinsons-radio-hour-parkinsonsradiohour/. Wish me luck and listen in if you can.
