"Parkinson Pete" reviews 'Advice from a Parkinson's Wife' by Barbara Sheklin Davis

Friday December 03, 2021

As the years went on, Barbara Davis found herself having gradually to shift from being her husband’s wife, partner, and companion to being his parent, nurse, and caregiver. It was not a sudden shift in function.  There is nothing sudden about Parkinson’s except maybe the shock of the initial diagnosis and, later, the falls. Once a patient shows the first physical symptom of the disease—often a slight tremor—Parkinson’s advances so slowly that even the patients and their families scarcely notice the changes.  The changes continue, however, steadily, unstoppably, and irreversibly.

Fall on Me

Monday November 29, 2021

"The truth is, I’m leery as the next guy to share my status as a person with a disability. Especially by way of a glaring, blaring  advertisement such as use of a walker.

"The Day Finally Came": Bryan Hill Shares His PD Journey

Monday November 22, 2021

"Parkinson’s has been a part of my life since the day I was born. My mother was diagnosed with EOPD in her early 20s and lived with it for 37 years. For me, the diagnosis came two months before my wedding date. I was 31 at the time. It would be years before I went public with the news. Instead, my wife Julia and I kept my diagnosis between us with the exception of a few close family members and friends.


A few short months ago, Julia and I welcomed our son Forrest into the world. Together we had agreed (prior to his arrival) that I would publicly disclose my diagnosis once he was born. We wanted him to grow up without the burden of a family secret. The day finally came. I shared my story on social media and the love and support I received in return was heartwarming – so much that it inspired me to give back to the PD community."
