Pandemic, the Sequel

Wednesday October 07, 2020

"This brings us to what we people with Parkinson’s can do that nobody else can. We can share the wisdom we have gained in our own struggles with Parkinson's. We can reassure those newly diagnosed that their quality of life, and the way they measure it will change, but not necessarily dramatically for the worse. And we can model healthy Parkinson's coping strategies, that can keep us going for years." Read more from Peter Dunlap-Shohl here!

Words Needed, the Never-Ending Search for a Better Parkinson’s Vocabulary (part of a sporadically recurring series)

Tuesday September 01, 2020

Peter Dunlap-Shohl suggests that the familiar set of medical and clinical terms "leaves much of the Parkinson’s experience to we with Parkinson's to put into words.

Boy, have we been barking up the wrong tree like a dyslexic dog, trying to attack Parkinson’s through painstaking, stringent, and it has to be said, borrrrrring science. We’ve been applying this method for years without any results, (er... aside from levodopa, DBS, and benefits of exercise.) Isn’t it time we tried something else?

Power of Speech

Monday July 27, 2020

"As humans, we try to be better versions of ourselves every day- we go to the gym, we pray etc., and a diagnosis of Parkinson's shouldn’t change that. Help is available- for the gradual decline in memory that may be leading to falls, for the swallowing problems, coughing and weight loss that you may have noticed and of course- for the soft voice." Read more from Urvi Solanki, Speech Pathologist and granddaughter of a person with Parkinson's.
