Jules Journey with Parkinson’s
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease on 7/20/18, at the age of 47. My father had this awful disease (even though it’s not a hereditary disease) so I unfortunately know how this story plays out. I thought I could hide my tremors from the world, but it has become too exhausting and stressful. So at this point, my dear close friends and family have encouraged me to “rip the band aid off” and let the rest of my world know. Please understand I am not looking for pity, simply understanding. I will continue to live my life to the fullest which includes taking care of and loving my wonderful family and friends and riding my beautiful horse Jewel. Jewel and I welcome you to follow us on our journey!
