I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease five years ago, with symptoms beginning long before then. Later this year I will be undergoing the DBS procedure and currently am in the preliminary testing stages to prepare for it.
Out of this experience, I have learned many things and met many friends I would not have known otherwise. I have a heart to encourage others who are losing hope, feeling down, or just need someone to listen.
I do not view this condition as a curse, but a blessing. My desire to be be a blessing to others because of it.
I currently live in Oregon with my husband of 29 years and have three grown children and one precious granddaugther who goes for walks with me and likes to play in the rocks.
