Very powerful read. - thanks for sharing! Perhaps your nature did not directly set you up for Parkinson's, but may have determined your default coping style. My experience has taught me that I always have to be mindful of the beast that is within me, regardless of what outside stressors I may encounter. Whether I respond to stressful circumstances through Fight or Flight, she can derail me in an instant. Developing a mindfulness practice has really helped me understand and mediate these responses to perceived threats. Wishing you all the best as you continue to out-think Parkinson's!
