    Book details


This book is written to give you the guidance, support and confidence you need to influence your future and alter the course of your life with Parkinson’s disease. “You have Parkinson’s disease.” Hearing these words for the first time changes everything. A normal reaction to the diagnosis is to question, “what changes are in store for me, how will this affect my future, or can I do anything that will make a difference in how I feel or progress .”No one can predict the future. However, each of us can influence our future through the choices we make, attitudes we embrace and information we receive.This book is not intended to be filled with facts about the disease; there are many books that cover these topics. Instead we have focused on 2 questions, “Does PD present an opportunity in disguise? What information, actions or attitudes are most helpful early in the disease to set the stage for living your best nowand into the future?” Alter Your Course tells a different story -one that is emerging within you -the person with PD. Your story can be filled with hope, inspiration, empowerment, resiliency and strength. Each chapter concludes with helpful advice designed to help you take control of your PD journey and alter your course. Most importantly, the last chapter is filled with advice; not from the authors, but people like you-living with PD.
