The tornado that hit Moore, OK was just one mile from our home. Talk about scary. We have no car so we had to sit it out. This brought home a lot about Parkinson's. From my fear of trying to go down into the shelter, I can't use a ladder very well. Also could I get back out. You get a real clear look at your life at a time like this. And it jumped started my mind. Up until this moment I was living in a depressed world. I could not really see a future of any value to me. This caused me to rethink my future and to come back to the real world. I was a Bull rider and Steer wrestler. This tornado and the damage it caused forced me to look at other people and not focus on my own pity. I am now recharged and am going to try to drive again. I stopped because it became a little hard. Now I see that I could have helped my family get out of the way. I could have killed them with my pity party. Never again. Life is going to be better from now on. No more feeling sorry for myself. Many people lost everything, including their lives.
