WHERE ARE YOU?

For folks that don't mind, please let me know where you live. I'm certainly not interested in invading your privacy, just interested in where in the world my blog message may be going.

When you comment or reply just include a reference as to where you live (city and state), or in your About Me section. The locator used currently doesn't tell me much!

Hi, I live in the Tyne Valley area of Northumberland, in a small town called Prudhoe. We are not too far from Newcastle upon Tyne ( North East England )

Hi christine,i was born and raised in newcastle,i now live in kelso,i remember trip to prudhoe and the tyne valley as a child,i went to brown rigg boarding school in bellingham for a while,(1972).

Hello Alan, Nice to hear from you. So how does a geordie end up in Kelso? I was born in Carlisle, but moved to Pruddhoe when I got married, and never left when I got divorced. Kelso is nice, I have been there once or twice. I bet being at Brownrigg was a bit different in the winter. Gets fair chilly up at Belllingham! Take care, Christine

Hi christine,i seem to recall an awful lot of snow that winter in bellingham!i married a girl from kelso in 2004 who i met while working in edinburgh for a while,(divorced when i got pd,a long story),hows prudhoe these days?lovely place the tyne valley especially on a summers day.

Reply

Prudhoe is cold, wet, and windy at the moment! Wish it was warmer, and lighter.I hate these dark long nights. Still, an early night with a DVD might be in order tonight, after I catch up on all the gossip on facebook ( my family are hooked on it ). Take care

Hi Christine , I live in Carlisle (born here,moved away,came back)

Where in Carlisle are you? I was brought up in Harraby, but before she died my mother lived in Mgt. Creighton Gardens, and I have an uncle just off Newtown Road. I still visit sometimes, and I often look at the old Carlisle website on Facebook.

Hey hello, im also from Carlisle, (Morton West), joined this site a month ago and have found it very helpful

Hi Jeff and others

Just a reminder that a similar question came up a while ago and Paul kindly organised a locator map for Community members use.

Instructions are in Questions area under the heading "Where is Everybody" which can be found by doing a search with one of the following words, community, location, map. Alternatively Victor gives a link to it below.

As an aside - The Third World Parkinson Congress is in Montreal, Canada from October 1 - 4, 2013. Quite a way off yet but advanced notice for saving plans! Hopefully many PM people will be there and perhaps can meet up.

Thanks, Victor.

If anyone here wants to add themselves to that map, please use the instructions that are about half the way down the page -- a browser page search (typically control-f in browsers running on Windows) for "Detailed instructions for marking your location" will get you there. (This was my first time with making a public map, and some problems in the initial post of that discussion are corrected in the post half way down. So, don't use the initial post for that.)

It's a 10-step process, which sounds like a lot, but they're small, simple steps.

Paul,

I spent most of my life in CO (3 - 60 yrs old). Ironically, we moved to Phoenix, AZ for my husbands health in January 2010 and 6 months later I was diagnosed with PD. My PD doc is the director of the Muhammad Ali PD Center. I love CO and really miss it, it is a beautiful state.

Hi,

I live in Green Valley, (Quail Creek) just south of Tucson,AZ.

Reply

I had ex-in-laws in Green Valley. The Buccholz couple. John passed sway, I think in the early 90's, Opal just about a year ago. But their daughter still lives there. I visited there a few times, and made sure not to miss the golfing.

Reply

I lived in Tucson for 19 years and after my husband died in 1974 I moved with my kids to San Diego. Just moved back here 2 years ago. I really love Arizona, the desert and mountains and sun sets and sun rises, and down here in Green Valley it is like a zoo with all the animals rroaming around. I do worry sometimes that some of them might go after my dog, Izzy. But, I love seeing all of them. I am in Quail Creek, we have 3 golf courses. If you ever get back here please let me know.

It's a pretty area. Sorry to say, it has been years since I have visited Inverness. I'm not sure exactly what area my niece lives in.

I am 73 and was diagnosed around 1998. Mentally doing fabulous, and physically it is starting to show, slightly....... but most people who know me, do not know I have PD, unless I have told them.

Susie01, I also live in Chattanooga, TN. Are you active in the PD support group that is held once a month at Siskin Hospital? I didn't make the meeting this month; but plan to do better next month. Maybe we could meet for lunch sometime. I think it would help me to talk to someone who has gone through the grieving process that I am working through at the moment. If you would like to meet, let me know.

Reply

Hi Cheri,

I have not yet been to the support group, had the info before the Holidays, was sick on one Tuesday when I had planned to go.

I would love to meet for lunch and talk with someone face to face other than my doctor about PD.

I will send you a private email with my phone number so we can get in touch.
