About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To appreciate each day

ABOUT ME

I am 54 years old now.
I play better golf now than I did 20 years ago and I try to stay active.
I eat well, as demanded by my diabetes.
I stopped smoking 21 years ago.
I have become a very religious man with a deep belief in God. (religion and smoking are not related. I quit smoking because it was a disgusting habit that was killing me.)
Stay sensibly healthy.
Keep a positive attitude.
Don't fall pray to the pride of having a chronic disease.
Avoid pity parties - no one wants to come to them anyways.
Become your own doctor. Take charge of your medical condition.
Remember that a car has a large front windshield and small rear-view mirrors for a reason. Don't try and drive while looking in the mirrors. Also, things in the mirror appear larger and closer than they really are. Live your life in a similar way. Look forward most of the time. Look backward for reference purposes only. And wear your seat belt known as Sinemet.
Be kind and forgiving. Love your kids more than they deserve. Love your partner more than he/she expects.
Love yourself and be thankful for the life you have.
Find faith in God

PHILOSOPHY

Value life in general - My adult life has been bracketed by two events I watched live on TV. One in November of 1963 (the assassination of President John F Kennedy in Dallas, Texas) and the other in September of 2001 (The Al Qaeda Terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City) We have all of these doctors and resources trying to deal with a disabling chronic disease. Many people never had the chance or opportunity to experience Parkinson's Disease. We are the fortunate ones. We have an opportunity to see the sun rise tomorrow.
