Ever since we first started recording the Parkinson’s Life podcast, we’ve been asking our guests the same three questions, designed to get to the heart of what it’s like to live with Parkinson’s disease. In this end-of year special, for the first time, we share some of their answers
Tiredness. Joy, in a way. The future.
Frozen. Shameful. Life-changing.
A bloody nuisance!
Reality. Unpredictable. End of innocence.
It’s a challenge.
Quicksand. Wet cement. Mercurial.
Freezing. Changing. Lack of control.
The uninvited houseguest.
Slow. Friends. Exercise. Cure.
Insidious. Indiscriminate. Scary.
A terrible disease. Needs to be eradicated.
Movement. Disorder. Disease.
It’s a journey.
Horrible. Scary. Empowering.
Opens new doors.
