Carpe Diem: Seize the Day
(Panel 2157)

The Day I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, I did not know what to think or feel. I had gone to the neurologist expecting him to tell me that I was working too hard and to take it easy. It was just a simple tremor. That's all. I was only 49. I didn't even really know what Parkinson's was, really. Not really. But when he, a friend and colleague, apologized and told me what he thought, I went dead for a moment. I found myself wishing it was cancer...or heart disease...something that would take me fast. I changed then. For the better really. I started to look at things, and people, differently....Life differently. I am a health care professional -- I look at patients differently. Now, I am the patient. This has been a blessing. And this panel says it all. So, those of you reading this statement now, go home, kiss your loved ones, and make a Bucket List. NOW.
