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.

This show is vulnerable, real, inspiring, and thought-provoking.

2.4 A Step Back Parkinson’s and Me

Often, the best source of information for those who have been newly or yet to be diagnosed comes from those who have lived it. In this episode, Bryan journeys back with Daniel a few years before he was diagnosed. Daniel had just turned forty. He was ready for the second part of his life. Listen as Bryan and Daniel discuss how life was like as a relatively young man before this disease interrupted a life Don't worry! This is not another story that is full of depressive tones. This isn't an episode of longing for the past but presented in a more informative format. Hopefully, this episode will help others to better understand ways to navigate the early years. Add your experience and suggestions to the conversation. If you would like to leave Daniel a voice message and you live in the U.S. call 1-706-873-1656.
