Here is my most recent article written for ParkinsonsDisease.net. Enjoy!
I often receive emails from people who have specific questions about Parkinson’s disease (PD). Today I heard from a woman who introduced herself as a non-Parkinsons gal who has PD women friends. Very dear friends for whom she would want to help in whatever capacity she can.
She asks: “What’s the best way a non-PD friend can help friends with Parkinson’s?” Here is my response. I hope it helps you understand that just being a “friend” is the best thing you can do for us.
Be there to listen
The best advice I can give you is to just listen when your friends need someone to talk to. We want our friends to be exactly that – friends. Not our caregivers, not our nurse or chauffeur, but a friend in the true sense of the word. Someone who we hang out with, call to share things good and bad, a confidant. A friend.

So Many Parkinson’s Organizations – So Little Time
There are many Parkinson’s Organizations competing for our time and our donations. Learn about the different Parkinson’s organizations and what they have to offer you as a person with PD. Join us for Sunday Mornings with Twitchy Woman on July 11 and 25 when we will have representatives from 8 different organizations talk to us about what they do and how you can get involved. Because of the topic, these two meetings are open to everyone.
