Parkinson’s is Hard: Part 1 episode summarY

In Part 1 of this two-part discussion, panelists discuss how Parkinson’s is hard. Topics we go into include:

  • The fact that as symptoms progress, treatments and techniques begin to lose their efficacy 
  • The need to slow down and do less due to symptoms 
  • The importance and art of pivoting, a necessary skill when you have a progressive disease 
  • The urge to talk less and begin to isolate when symptoms worsen 
  • The importance of not comparing yourself to those around you, as difficult as it is 
  • Learning self-care
