Thank you so much Beehive, firstly for the example of courage which helps me to handle my modest problems, and secondly to reenforce the need to be EXTRA CAREFUL with masks, washing hands 10 times a day and desinfectent all day long...

Hope you feel better soon.🌻

I was just thinking about you yesterday, wondering how you were doing. Thank you for the warning and best of luck to you.

I mean washing hands and use désinfectent all day long.

Prayers coming for a quick recovery!

Thanks for sharing and I am glad you survived. It sounds like a terrible experience but you are indeed a trooper! I am quite concerned for so many people with pre-existing conditions like PD, cancer, MS, etc.

Hoping for better days!

Thx for sharing. My neuro said to avoid exposure if at all possible; that PDPs have a hard time bouncing back to their pre-virus “normal” after fighting COVID.

As a result I haven’t been to a gym for 9 months. Feel like a rusty hinge!

Hang in there!

I normally get seasonal bronchitis but this year it became pneumonia. I was doing really good with my PD symptoms management, actually to the point of seeing solid improvement of my diagnosis. Then came pneumonia for 3 -4 months and I made a full regression. Im now 3-4 months since and im still finding some things hard, I've lost strength mainly now but its slowly getting better. Your right in your reply tho bouncing back is very hard.

thank you!

Here's hoping you have a complete recovery!
