Hi, you all probably know of my husband, Drew410, on this site. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's before we met and told me this at the very beginning of our relationship. He is such an amazing person that his having this illness did not make one jot of difference to the way I felt about him then or indeed feel about him now. My only gripe is that this vicious illness has destroyed our social life. We used to love playing golf together and we were always the ones still dancing when everyone else had given up! We both love Status Quo so there was always a lot of rocking going on. Now, Drew can no longer play golf - although we are going to make an effort to try again with a buggy during the summer (if we get one in Scotland). We were out at a village event last Thursday and Drew only managed one dance all night. I find this really frustrating, both for him and me.
I am not much of a blogger so I expect that I will not be on this site very much but I know what it means to all of you so God bless you all.
Drew has resigned from the site - for his own reasons - and his farewell to you all disappeared before anyone had the chance to say goodbye back. I know that his insight and communication skills will be missed. If anyone would like to reply to him through me then you will be most welcome.
Remember to care for the Carers!
