Imagine Michelangelo’s disappointment if he stood back to admire his David and all the dust and chipped marble that he laboriously removed over months slowly began to reattach to the sculpture. David was gradually becoming covered up and drowned in the discarded marble.

Would Michelangelo give up art if he then saw his Sistine chapel fresco brush stroke by brush stroke go back to an ordinary ceiling?

This is what it feels like to see the gains you have achieved in managing your Parkinson’s symptoms be pushed back. My symptoms have worsened recently and I have retreated from where I was.

But, I won’t give up trying to sculpt or paint my life…
