Figured it was time to introduce myself: I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2006. It’s on my right side, tremor in right hand, small handwriting, and bradykinesia with right hand, stiff shoulder, and arm muscle always tight. I’m a registered dental hygienist, and like so many here, Parkinson has stepped in and announced its time to take something from you; so last year, I had to give up my hygiene work and piano playing. I understand there will be someone who cannot understand why in the world anyone would be a hygienist, and that’s ok;LOL I call myself a hygiene “geek” because I loved my job! So I’m working from home doing some writing and webinar; I held a webinar (a 101 about Parkinson’s) a few weeks ago for the dental profession, so I’m staying busy and enjoying reading the blogs. I’m having a problem downloading my picture, any tips? Thanks for reading, Carla Gantz, RDH
