Grooving with PD

Every day is a challenge

With ups and downs

And we all know right now

There is no cure to be found

Daily chores are hard to do

But don't give up

Try to focus on

Not what you can't

But what you can do

Pop your Parkie pills

Get yourself grooving

Exercise helps you

Keep on moving

Put on music

And sing out loud

Dance around the room

Have no one to dance with

Dance with a broom

Trust in a higher power

And when they find a cure

We will all be rejoicing

Thats for sure

  • Hi,

    Music is necter for the soul, iam just listening to my fav artist David Bowie, and was pondering as to which music will play me out off this mortel earth and here it is

    Lou Reed ( perfect day)

    ahh, what rawness. what true sincerity. so painful, yet so great. lyrical music like this, with such a real and authentic sound comforts me so so much! loneliness is a human condition, but I think I can deal with it. really, sometimes, I just feel as if the world is so much bigger when you're alone. and music, it just ties everything together.

    And

    Dust in the wind By Kansas, What a perfect day to here both,

    Not beeing morbid , just love music and i think this would sum up my feelings at the end

  • I love your poem,. I'm watching too much TV. I love Glee though and dance along. My Parkinson's classes include a class with music. It's so much fun, and I can move to music when I can't move otherwise.

  • I love you poem as well. I love music - it is so great - I sometimes forget to put it on. I go to water aerobics and they have music - makes it so much fun, as well as exercising! Thank you for sharing.

  • I think music is one of the best therapys When my meds are working I go.to..line dancing and I also sing in in the choir at church. I try to do what I can whenever I can. If you keep a positive attitude you feel better.Look up Michael Buble on you tube Save the last dance for me. Its a peppy song.

  • Thanks for those encouraging words.
