5 years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. At the time I started to write about my experiences and feelings, I considered a Blog but felt, at the time, that there were so many others with years of experience of living with Parkinson’s, that I had little to contribute. Now 5 years down the line and with 4 substantial projects to report on I have something to say, so I am launching PEP talk.
PEP stands for lots of things:-
- Personal Experience of Parkinson’s – there will certainly be some of that. Sometimes the smallest things make a lot of difference. It’s important to share, though I won’t be recommending anything just reporting.
- Parkinson’s Education Project – I pick up lots of information, from many different sources, and will pass on useful nuggets
- Patient Education Posts – I’ll pass on the experiences of other patients
- Patient Eirwen’s Perspectives – Musings on some of the wider issues around living with a life changing diagnosis
I could probably find other PEPs, but that will do for now.
What what I hope PEP talk won’t be, is “preachy”!
