Universal aspects of Parkinson’s

As you grow older you gradually find you have shed your former skin and left behind what once you found easy; the pool of energy at your disposal shrinks; your body changes and creaks like an old floor board. Gradually, and sometimes imperceptively, you adapt and come to terms with your changing self. This process of growing old takes decades and is universal to all…

Parkinson’s speeds up this process and dumps on you in one moment all of the issues, emotions and difficulties of aging that usually take decades to play out and gradually resolve. In a sense most are succumbing to the issues surrounding Parkinson’s in slow motion. Unfortunately, for some the fast forward button has been pressed.
