got the book in the post today,found it mildly amusing(english sense of humour and american are sometimes very different)BUT it IS a masterpiece and should be issued to every newly diagnosed parkie it runs through the symptoms in a flippant thorough way and should ease the fears and trepidations of many new parkies. bev you are a miracle you have portrayed the ins and outs of this disease that even i being full of inspiration have been further inspired. MY good friend you deserve the highest accolade the U.S.A. can award you JUST TO LET YOU KNOW I AM KING MAD PARKIE ALL US PARKIES LUV THIS NAME and encourage people to use it
I am a caregiver for a parkie....this book really can help you get through the tough times with a good belly laugh. I highly recommend it for the parkie and the parkie caregiver. It will put a smile on your face and you can relate to each of her "issues" as you walk with this disease. It also will help those new to this disease as well as those of you just curious about it. Parkinson's is not just a shaking disease......"Have a Happy Parkie Day!" back at the author!!!!!
Yuma Bev puts a very real, but always smiling face on Parkinson's disease. She has you smiling or laughing out loud every story. Her analogies are spot on. This was one of the best reads I've had in a long time. Watch out Michael J Fox, this book might outshine your Lucky Man!
I plan to share this book with our Stephen Ministers to help them learn about some of the challenges and ways of coping with Parkinson's. The stories are not too technical and the humor is wonderful. Kudos to Yuma Bev!
