Has someone in your life been diagnosed with Parkinson's?
Love, Dignity, and Parkinson's
As a subscriber to my free email newsletter, you will get regular messages from me - hard-won wisdom sent from the heart - for the PD caregiving life.
I support caregivers of people with Parkinson's. But what I've got for you is different.
Here, I will pay attention to what PD caregiving does to YOUR life.
I've been in your shoes—I was a caregiver for my dearly loved husband, and I know all too well the thoughts that cross your mind, wondering, "What happened to MY life?"
After my Husband with Parkinson's (HWP) passed away I realized that my journey with Parkinson's wasn't over. So, I sat down at my desk and penned the book Love, Dignity, and Parkinson's. Though, considering how PD affects our lives, I might have titled it "Well, Crap."
My book and my lifeline letters are all about sharing insights and reflections on living the caregiving life, and I assure you, I won't bring any perky notions that this is a highly fulfilling experience. It's NOT the "hardest job you'll ever love," and I won't claim " you have only been given burdens you can bear."
Caregiving is hard. Don't face it alone. Together, we can make your caregiving journey a little more interesting and a little easier.
