Getting Prepared for Summer with PD
As we enter the spring season and anticipate the summer months, with warmer temperatures, I was wondering how many of you have more Parkinson’s symptoms during the hot weather. I know that warm weather is certainly a problem for me. My gait and coordination in general become worse when I am in a hot car or walking in the sun. What is it like for you? Let’s discuss how we can cope with warmer temperatures.
Here is a blog from the Michael J. Fox website that discusses exercise in warmer temperatures. https://www.michaeljfox.org/foundation/news-detail.php?ways-people-with-parkinson-can-stay-active-in-the-heat. I’m looking forward to hearing from you, @chrisj2491 @denie57 @johnjames @trouble4343 @ggopher @tntredhead @aperob @caryp43 @burgle @macbeth @knightkris @mariemarie @pjsammy.

I can’t remember if I told you or not but I lost my Tom known the 25th. I am having a difficult time so please remember me in your prayers as we go through the last rites tomorrow with full military honors.TrishThe Redhead
@tntredhead Trish: The last I heard from you, your husband was in hospice care. I’ve been thinking about you. I’m so sorry for your loss. You must miss him terribly! My sympathies and prayers go with you and your family during this time. I trust that the service with full military honors will be a tribute to his life. Please stay in touch with us and let us know how you are doing. Teresa

I can imagine at a time like this words are hard to find. But here on Connect words are all we have. So even if you only write a brief message to say, “I need to hear from you today.” We’ll be there. We might not say the right things, but darn it, we’ll do our best.
@mari, do you know where does she get stem cells? Which city and hospital?Who is her doctor? Thank you!
