What's the point of making an effort? To add to your struggle by staying positive, keeping busy and pretending it's ok. But no everyday on with a big smile and pat on the back 'arent we doing well' . It's so politically correct to be a patient that 'inspires' someone who says 'I'm a better person' now. Does it help the world to level illness by spot lighting those who are excemplorary patients?
......... But, maybe we miss the point .....
What you choose to do, roll over or stare down disease is not about your condition and how well you cope it's about life. Your life. I personally subscribe to the notion that I only have this one. One chance. So I choose to make it the best it can be, the very best. If I don't who looses out? Well me. So, give in, well go ahead, don't bother no don't if that's how you feel, be utterly miserable it's not compulsory to smile. It's just you won't find me doing any of that. PD or no PD I LOVE LIFE.... I find joy in The Clangers, I lick raw cake mix from the bowl, I adore cheesy disco, I grab everyday and run it hard and fast. I continue to find solutions, plan, stay ahead. I guess I'm pretty selfish, but I never want to say I wish I had or if only.., I want to say wow one hellofa ride. That's in my opinion in my hands.
