I'm a 57-year old retired government writer/editor who has had Parkinson's disease for 12 years. I retired in 2011 when PD rendered me practically home bound. I can't go outside, other than just the front porch, without my roller walker and my wife to help me when my gait freezes, which it will. I still have a working brain and wish to apply it in a way that will make life better -- if not for me, then at least for the future "Parkies" who will be diagnosed this year. I've written a book about my experience with an experimental brain surgery that you can find at my Parky Face website. I also rage against the right wing on my political satire blog, The Liberal Grouch. Come on by, have a look, and get good and angry at me!
