MY LIFE

 I know that you are curious and want to know what I do outside of class. So here is a little more about me!

 

 

 ABOUT ME

As you look at the picture to the left of this text box, you may wonder what it symbolizes. You might say based on this photo that I am a gardener. Well, I do like to work with plants, especially roses and red tulips. But this logo is a lot more.This is the Parkinson's Disease logo.

In the fall of 2013, I began to experience symptoms more frequently than I had in the previous fifteen years. In 2001, with the encouragement of my students I sought relief and understanding for the tremors that were appearing in my arms and neck. I was told at that time that it was something else, and it was all in my head.

Over these years the symptoms would come and go. During the last three months of 2013 though, the symptoms were with me every waking moment and progressively getting worse. Slowly I was losing the mobility of walking and typing that many of us take for granted.

With the support of my loving wife, we explored medically these symptoms.On January 9, 2014, I was informed by my doctor that I am suffering from a form of Parkinson's movement disorders called Parkinson's agitans. But this is not a death sentence.

What this means is that with proper medication, exercise, and nutrition, I should live a very fulfilling life. New medicines and treatments help people like me everyday. While I don't know if I'll be back to running 5K races are not, I do plan on walking a few.

I understand that this diagnosis could be looked upon as either a road block or a speed bump in life. I do not ask "Why Me?" but rather "Why NOT Me?" .

I define my life. I live life on my terms. I live life.
