Seven years ago, I began doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Of course, back then it did not have a name…it was just what I was doing. At the same time, I began keeping a hand-written Parkinson’s Daily Journal. It is time to share my journal with all of you. Here is my November 14, 2009 journal entry, seven years ago today.
“11/14/09. Up at 4. Took Victoria to her clarinet lesson and brought Steven his bike. In the afternoon, I cut the grass.
It was cool out, but it still wore me out. However, the yard looks nice.
Sally, Victoria, and I watched 27 Dresses. It was a cute movie.”
So, here it was, the weekend. We were busy doing weekend things. As I have pointed out before, when participating in a busy family on the weekend, there was a big diversion from staring at my symptoms. I was more focused on participating in life with my family.
And, I did my best, fully accepting that my best was good enough. Your best is good enough as well…in your life and in your Parkinson’s recovery. Click here for a reminder of how your best is good enough.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
Please note: I will be posting one post per day through the middle of November. If you subscribe to receive email notifications when I post new blog posts and you would prefer to not receive those daily email notifications, simply send me an email at email@example.com, and let me know that you do not wish to receive a daily email with a link to each post. I will remove you from the list through the middle of November and add you back on the list after the middle of November. However, I still would recommend you checking the blog on a regular basis as it will contain very useful information for understanding my journey and helping with your journey.
Doing a little is better than doing nothing!
You are right, it helps to produce dopamine😘 Thank you very much for your great support. It helps a lot!!

Rebecca I too am in New Zealand and was woken rudely like you.I responded with whole body shaking for a good 2 hours. This really is an example of the huge fear component of the disease.
Thinking of you and hope you are coping with the aftershocks and devastation.
