and having writ, moves on. Not all thy piety nor wit can call it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out one word of it. (Omar)
Like many others, I joined this group shortly after diagnosis, some years ago, looking for answers to the new challenge of PD and for friends with whom to share those answers. Neither was easy to find. Having spent most of my life as a peace officer, retirement was sweet and my sense of humor may have been a bit too much for some of my fellow pwp. One of my "contributions" was a "tongue-in-cheek" excerpt from a (non-existent) Parkinson Instruction Manual entitled, "How to Put on Pants". It was generally well received but was criticized by others, some of whom had hurt themselves previously while donning trousers. My belated, but sincere apology.
