Since I have been back from my excursion to the other side of the world, Bali for those who have followed my blogs, I have notice a distinct change in me, both mental and physical.
For one thing I am working out more, yoga 5-6 times a week and still taking pilates two hours a week. That in itself is a GREAT improvement!! I have lost 12 pounds so far and I want to and intend to loose more. My attitute is much better, not so many down days, though they may still come, I don't think they would be as bad because I would just go to yoga and sweat it out.
So there is a possiblity for a good and fulfilling life after the dx for PD!!! Not that everyone can or would take a trip like I did (I was so lucky to have my precious duaghter travel with me!!) but if you want to do something, don't let this thing we all hate (Parkinson's) stop you!!! If you can, take a short day trip, then extend it if you can. The best thing I learned from my trip is to plan out every detail and come prepared to deal with the unexpected too.
So with all my heart I hope each of you can take some kind of trip or excursion, and that each of you will be better when you are finished.
Love to all of you!!
