"Parkinson's Shouldn't Mean Pessimism"

the words 'I'm Kitty"

Mid 2016 I received the news that the limp that had been bothering me for a while was early onset Parkinson's Disease. I fell into a dark pit and cried constantly for days on end.

But I'm made of stern stuff. Despite life's hurdles it's possible to maintain a positive outlook that can help you achieve anything you set your mind to.

I am a motivational speaker and observational comic that writes about life, families, emigrating too many times and living with Parkinson's Disease.

Don't let that last bit put you off. It's not contagious, but being positive  is.

"I might have Parkinson's, but Parkinson's doesn't have me."

I refused to be defined by something like an incurable degenerative disease. I actively promote positive images and attitudes around Parkinson's and all people affected by disabilities or disease.

We are not our affliction.

All people have value.

"You are a person who NEVER gives up especially when faced with a challenging condition like Parkinsons."
