Janet Ramey Parkisons Warrior

I am a Parkisnons Warrior.  I did not choose to become  Pqrkinson's Warrior,  just like we do not choose most of the things that go on in this lifetime.  I did not choose to be a Pastor's wife, but I am one.  I did not choose to have a child with brain cancer, but I have one.  I did not plan on retiring early from a job that I loved, but I did that.

Levdopa/Carbidopa is my go-to drug.  I do not want to take Levadopa/Carbidopa because eventually you get the rocking thing going on like Michael J. Fox.  My boss used tell me not to care about the shaking.  I cared because it didn't ever stop.  The anxiety that come with a constant tremor is unbelievable.  The stiffness that comes with a constant tremor cannot be described with words.  The constant pill-taking to keep up the dopamine levels so you can function is demoralizing.

What good am I?
