If you have Parkinson’s disease (PD), you know that few things are quick and easy — except the following list that helps you remind yourself that living well with PD is possible. Read this list once a day — twice if it’s a rough day:

  • Challenge — Acknowledge and face the facts.

  • Humor — Find and revel in the absurd.

  • Empowerment — Refuse to surrender your life and relationships to PD.

  • Collaboration — Team with your family, friends, and healthcare providers.

  • Knowledge — Know the difference between myth and fact and keep up with the latest developments.

  • Integration — Treat the body, mind, and spirit.

  • Never give up!
