Have a joyous holiday season. As we head into the end of the year, people are celebrating many holiday traditions around the world. The one thing that is clear is that Parkinson’s Disease does not discriminate in who it decides to afflict.
I just finished reviewing the listing of where this blog is being read…it has surpassed 70 countries around the world. Interesting to me is that some of the countries I see on the list are in conflict with each other, but what we have been able to achieve here on this blog is a sense of community with no barriers, joined together in our quest against a common enemy — Parkinson’s Disease. We have people in the States and Canada sharing their recovery and cheering on a woman in Romania who is offering advice and support to a man in England who is helping a man in India. We have a woman in Germany talking about her recovery along side of two woman in New Zealand and a woman in Australia. And the list goes on.
This is a big group of us fighting Parkinson’s. Think about it. Women and men from over 70 countries in an age range from their 20’s to their 80’s all coming together here to learn and share and laugh and cry…and recover…that’s right…recover. Somebody recently said to me that all “incurable” means is that you cure from within, which is consistent with what we are doing here.
“I have the power to heal myself.” And I did.
“You have the power to heal yourself.” Marie did, and you are.
“Together we have the power to heal the world.” Women and men from over 70 countries in an age range from their 20’s to their 80’s coming together for a common purpose fighting Parkinson’s Disease. Yes, no doubt, together we have the power to heal the world!
Have a joyous holiday season and let the dopamine flow.
By the way, yesterday, I saw my neurologist. He put me through his tests and confirmed that I remain symptom free. Who’s next? Aren’t you worth it?
All my best,
\I think i have taken my 64th birthday which falls on 30th Jan.. 2012 as the cut off point from which date i should become nearly symptom free. The signs are ominous for that to happen.Thanks.
My gratitude goes out to Howard and all of you. The rocky road gets a little smoother each day with your support. Here’s to even smooth sailing in 2012 and beyond!!
We WILL recover!!!
Howard, you and everyone on the site were truly my best gift of the past year. In the coming year I look forward to so many of us becoming symptom free that the world will take notice, and someday no one diagnosed with PD will feel hopeless, depressed and afraid. Best wishes to everyone for a totally Joyous holiday
Greetings Howard and all of you from so many different countries – all united by similar purpose and vision. I so enjoy the idea of “incurable” meaning healing from within…and as we heal ourselves, as Nancy says, “the world will take notice, and someday no one diagnosed with PD will feel hopeless, depressed and afraid” – what wonderful awareness to bring into 2012! Warmest wishes to all throughout the holiday season.
Love and gratitude,
I echo Nancy’s comment that this blog was the best gift of 2011. We all are united with one goal –RECOVERY!
Best wishes to all! Here’s to recovery in 2012!
All of you have been a gift to me. Thank you! I look forward to everybody’s recovery!
With gratitude, blessings and love,
