"I am a courageous woman, and a strong survivor. I was never afraid of anything, until I was diagnosed with PD.  It frightens me greatly. It made me aware that I am not invincible. I now try to be aware of my limitations and honor them. The best prescription to keep my symptoms quiet is lots of diverse and challenging exercise. "
