Thank you to the staff at Weebly who helped me recover this blog and my writings, which had gone dormant. When I figured out last week that i might never see that first post I wrote in 2014 which succinctly described the early steps we took at figure out what the problem was; all the way through to the diagnosis - now with Parkinson's brain, 7 years later (since the first outward sympton) - I didn't think I would be able to recapture the moment and the feelings I expressed in 2014 when I was not as advanced as I am now. I was very upset thinking it was gone forever.
But the Weebly crew assured me that they archive and sure enough my writings were rescued. I cannot thank the team enough for their support, kindness, and overall awesomeness!!!!
For those of you who are part of my Support Team, i have a Facebook Group now dedicated to you that my husband can send updates using (more easily than this blog site) whenever he needs to release information. As you may know, I have been fast-tracked for the Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery, which will most like take place in March. I am very excited just imagining that one I won't be tremoring any longer. I long for the stillness and the peace that most of you enjoy. 2016 is my year and I am taking back my life.
The new Facebook Group is called: "Help Take Back My Life in 2016" (aka Lisa's Super Hero PD Support Group) and is located HERE. Please feel free to join me and my Super Heroes there or you can contact me through the CONTACT page here.
