SCREW YOU PD

As the new year starts, I can’t help but look back to where I was a year ago.  I was still reeling from the “you have Parkinson’s Disease” conversation with my doctor.  I was in the midst of figuring out which meds worked for me.  I was still hiding my diagnosis from all but my closest friends.  I was stricken with anxiety about the battle that lay ahead.  PD is a “progressive, neurodegenerative disease.”  To me this said, today is the best I’m ever going to feel.  I will get worse with each passing day…well, SCREW YOU PD!  I don’t know exactly when it happened but at some point I decided that it didn’t have to be that way.  I decided to fight back.  It hasn’t been easy; in fact, it often feels like a full time job but my life depends on it.  Compared to a year ago, I am less stiff, my tremors are less, my gait is better, I sleep better, my energy is greater, I am stronger, I feel healthier,  my motivation is through the roof and I am helping others with PD.  God is walking right beside me on this journey and I can do anything when I keep my focus on Him.  I don’t know what this year will hold or what God has planned for me but I am excited to see how He is going to use me.  Together we will defy the odds. Here we go 2018.  Bring it on!
