Those with Parkinson’s Disease experience crushing anxiety and overwhelming depression. This does not include the unrelenting progression of the disease that seems to rip your ability to move properly a piece at a time.

The effects of Parkinson’s makes it so difficult to accurately describe what it is to experience the degradation to those who want to help the most. Parkinson’s and Me is a podcast that is dedicated to the discussion of the multifaceted condition. It begins with a man who was diagnosed with P.D. in his early forties.

Out of my wish to not become a victim. I urge myself and others to take action. Let your voice be heard where it is needed. “By helping policymakers understand what is fundamentally important to those who know Parkinson’s disease intimately, you can shape their decision-making. Contact your elected officials now and tell them how they can use their votes to support Parkinson’s research and care.” The Michael J. Fox Foundation has made it so easy! Simply, click here. The Foundation has written and formatted emails to policymakers for you. All you have to send is to select “Send.” Including personal messages in these emails are encouraged.

2.7 Makes Me Who I Am Parkinson’s and Me

"I believe what I believe is what makes me who I am". In this episode, Daniel explains how the world of science and technical achievement is not enough to place our hope. Those with Parkinson's understand how little is known about how the brain works. There is so little that is understood about Parkinson's. Research does not always bear encouraging fruit. In the darkness, we must answer the question of whether the Lord is who He says He is. Denominations have strived to have the answers we are looking for. Catholics, Baptist, Methodist, Lutherans, Assemblies of God, etc. Nor does Science. God is not bound by these limitations. Through creative analogies, Daniel describes how we sabotage the blessings in our life because of our distrust in the supernatural. We dig empty wells in the sand to discover that we can't find water on our own. This leads to exhaustion and apathy. The Lord is offering us a cup of living water. Yet, we continue to dig new wells. How can we hand over such an important part of our life to a God that we do not see? Many of us harbor great resentment and anger toward God due to the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. It's understandable. Parkinson's is an unforgiving taskmaster. However, we are the children of a huge God and we can beat on his chest. Parkinson's disease does not have an exit strategy at this time. The Lord is never early and never late. Help is on the way.
