One Step at a Time

When people learn that Peter’s Parkinson’s disease was diagnosed eight years ago, they can’t believe that we still live in a house with three flights of stairs.  We too thought the stairs would force us to move, but so far, they haven’t been a problem. 

The other day, he brought home a book, 300 Tips for Making Life Easier with Parkinson’s Disease, given to him by one of his health-care providers. It suggests ways to cope with everyday challenges of Parkinson’s such as deteriorating handwriting, impaired mobility, and difficulty swallowing.

I know that it could be a helpful book, but I couldn’t get through it because the picture it paints is so bleak.  I put it on the shelf for future reference, in the hope that we won’t need it.
