About the Book

I believe that rain, snow, sun, and wind are miracles made from the dust of the earth. One day we are healthy, the next day we are not. In 2008 I was showing neurological signs of Parkinson’s. I went to see my doctor, and she ordered an MRI. A few days after my MRI, I received a phone call from my doctor telling me that the MRI showed positive signs of Parkinson’s. I went to follow up with my family doctor to create a plan for my future.

The symptoms I experienced in the early stages were:
• Difficulty writing
• Slow movement
• Softer voice
• Feet were heavy and difficult to move
• Hand tremors
• Poor balance when walking
• Drooling
• Always feeling cold
• Challenges with hand dexterity, making it difficult to peel fruit, put a letter in an envelope, hold a cup, dress, shave, and hold cutlery

Before I knew what was wrong with me, I was very frustrated. Once I was given the diagnosis and began seeing doctors, I was still frustrated. However, I didn’t feel as if I were in the dark anymore.
