Weekend PD Notes — a simple island life

Hello lovely friends, what are you up to this weekend? Marc and I are enjoying having his parents visiting this week. It’s also my mom’s birthday so we’re having a birthday lunch on Sunday.

? Last week there was a post on the World Parkinson Congress blog by Mariam Bram. The title of her post is Shame and Stigma of Living with Parkinson’s. I love how she describes what she calls “radical acceptance: the act of living authentically with my vulnerabilities embraced, including Parkinson’s and all of it’s symptoms and limitations”. Read the post here.

? The WPC also held its virtual congress. In addition to the in person event they hold every three years, they will also hold yearly conferences virtually. It has 68 events with lots of topics from science to wellness. It’s available online until August 19th and you can watch sessions anytime. I particularly enjoyed the Living well with Parkinson’s sessions.

? The Parkinson’s Foundation, in collaboration with the American College of Sports Medicine, has created new exercise guidelines for people with Parkinson’s. At the bottom of the article is a handy poster that you can click on and save as a PDF. If you’re new to exercise, or have been falling behind because of the lock down, don’t be daunted. Take it in small steps and do a little exercise every day and build up. As the saying goes “What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while”.

? @yopdclub on Instagram has some great inspirational quotes from all sorts of interesting people.
