I am very regularly asked “what would you do if you were diagnosed with Parkinson’s tomorrow?”
As a research scientist I don’t really feel comfortable answering it, but I can see how it is a fair question. I have previously attempted to address it (Click here to read that post), and I point folks who do ask in the direction of that post.
But a recent experience has me wanting to re-address it.
In today’s post, we will revisit this idea of what would I do if I were diagnosed with Parkinson’s tomorrow?

I lost someone extremely close to me early last year.
Even more than COVID19 or anything else that occurred, that singular event defined 2021 for me personally. There was life before, and now life adjusting to being without them.
And I’m not sharing this out of any desire for sympathy – honestly, I don’t want it. Everyone has suffered hardships over the last 2 years. Rather, I am telling you this for a very different reason.
It helps to set the context for the discussion today.
