Terry & Marian's Thanksgiving for Two

Tuesday November 13, 2018

Today's Tuesday with Terry is about two "T" words that go great together - turkey and Thanksgiving. Over the years, my mom and I have settled on a pared down version of Thanksgiving.

Never Say Never

Monday November 05, 2018

I remember hearing someone (probably my old English teacher) say you should make your words soft and tender—you may have to eat them. I’ve been munching on the word 'never' for a while.

The Parkinson's Holiday

Wednesday October 31, 2018

So you didn't know that there is an official holiday for Parkinson's? Yeah, it’s Halloween (rim shot, or spooky groan, your call).

Halloween is the time of year we set aside to recognize the importance of ghosts and ghouls and things that go bump in the night. I don’t know about you, but in addition going bump in the night, I often go bump in broad daylight! 

The following content describes an individual experience of Parkinson's, and we recommend that readers defer to their own comfort level with the subject matter before reading this post. NW Parkinson’s strives to recognize  and engage with a variety of perspectives and experiences relating to Parkinson’s. The below represents the opinions and judgements of the author only, and does not necessarily reflect those of Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation.

Friday October 19, 2018

They’re known as volunteers and rarely get the recognition and plaudits they deserve. For them, that’s OK—that’s not why they give time and effort to help others. What follows is a story about two of these people—two volunteers that want to make a difference."

Reimagining Our Approach to Parkinson’s

Monday September 24, 2018

Parkinson’s has no scruples. It doesn’t play fair. It hits below the belt. It has no use for the Marquis of Queensbury Rules nor the finer points of dueling etiquette.

What if instead of framing our situation as a battle, we made it our goal to live as well as possible with Parkinson’s? This seemingly more modest aim is actually attainable, and a more humane approach for those of us in the struggle.
