Come fly with me

13 Nov 2012

I do actually talk quite a lot. You would never guess though would you? I mean, I’ve been almost Trappist in my approach to this blog and I am actually quite ashamed tbh because I really like talkhealth and now I’ve met them, the talkhealth Ladies, oooo yes, they’re very nice. I met them on Saturday at the Mumsnet Blogfest.

And I got to thinking. Why haven’t I blogged very much on this site? I blog elsewhere. Why not here? And the only conclusion I could come up with was I can’t deal with having PD as a central theme in my life. Becasue it’s not. And that’s good.

Priorities are family, fun and friends, and that’s as it should be. PD isnt a central theme. it’s a bit player, lurking in the wings, jumping out every now and again. but it doesnt have headline status. No.

and that realisation is worth a post. No?



Shall I introduce myself? My name is Stitch This. Ah, you've guessed already that I've made that up, nobody would have parents that cruel would they? No, I write under a pseudonym so I can feel fairly free and easy about my comments and thoughts. So much more fun when you are invisible I think. I have two small, noisy, sticky boys and a husband who is rapidly turning into a boat-head as a pose to the rabid petrol head he has been ever since we met. Which was when we were 18. I am in my, ahem, early 40's and was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson's in January 2008 although the symptoms started Summer 2005. I have an established blog where I record my stitchy attempts and general life ramblings which hitherto has included PD stuff to a certain extent. It was that blog that has brought me here.
