I'm Back!!!

Dear Karyn,
I am on the DBS track to have it done if I pass the psyco part,  I have had PD since 2004 when I was diagnosed, I probably had it for two or more years before that and did not know it.
I found your blog through Yumabev's blog.
I am a retired electrician and am 69 years old.  I live in western Oklahoma, 14 miles from the Texas state line.
As I said earlier, I am on the possible list for DBS and I want to know all that may be of interest with the DBS, good and bad.  I am reading all of your post that are on line and I signed up for your updates by email.
THANK YOU for keeping this blog going it has helped me a whole lot.
Even with the bad things that have happened to you and Yumabev, I think it will help me a lot.
Again I want to thank you,

WOW! I can't believe that my last blog was on December 2012! How time flies. It has taken Mike's email to shake me out of retirement.
And now that I'm here again, I see through my "Feejit" tool, that in the past 5 days, there have been about 50 visits from the following places.... Australia, America, Columbia, San Paulo, The UK, Spain,  Italy, Brazil, Hungry, Portugal, Bangkok, Norway, Rio De Janeiro, Bali, Venezuela, Buenos Aires, Oslo, India, Panama, Chile and Berlin.
I am overwhelmed!
And motivated to keep blogging.
I have some ideas spinning around in my head.

Whilst I ask you to come back, (or better still use the "FOLLLOW BY EMAIL" box, to receive blogs straight in your inbox,) while I finalise what I want to write, I'll leave you for now with an article that was written about me after I received the prestigious SIR ZALMAN COWAN AWARD in November 2014.

So come back soon to read about
*Travel & DBS (an update)
*Mode A and Mode B
*Parkinson Warriors
*How to start up a Support Group in your area.

See you all soon!

PS Mike, What bad? Mostly been good!!!


  1. Glad you are back on. I will check back and see what is developing. I understand the complexity that DBS brings, never knowing again which came first the disease progression and symptoms or the side effects from DBS. Mostly, DBS is a great benefit to many of us. Thanks for your blog.

  2. Think I might be one of those uk hits you mention above . I had DBS at Xmas 2013 not for PD but after effects of Lymes and intractable pain. Working well with a Boston scientific rechargeable system. Going on holiday soon and need to fly so will watch your blog on travel with interest . Although PD is the most common reason for DBS there are others with similar experiences and needs for which your experience is very useful.
    Thank you for your time helping others

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback, Laura.
