Everyone will love these truthful and inspiring blogs about living with an incurable, chronic illness.
Support is vital when living with any chronic condition. And if you have Parkinson’s disease and you’re not tapping into the online Parkinson’s disease (PD) community, you could be missing out on some of the greatest support of all. These blogs cover all the bases of living with PD, such as how to date with a chronic illness, tips on alternative therapies, and the importance of exercise. The latter is a central focus for many of these websites — and for good reason.
Fitness has long been recognized as a vital part of PD treatment. In fact, a study published in February 2017 in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease suggested daily exercise can often lead to significant reductions in symptoms and improvement in quality of life. Sometimes, though, you might experience moments when it’s more difficult to get going. So when your motivation wanes, these blogs are ideal for reclaiming it.
Ultimately, these blogs are great reads for education, inspiration, and support from fellow PwPs (persons with Parkinson’s). Here are our 10 favorites:
