Un témoignage sur la Maladie de Parkinson
by Terry Rummins

Terry used to be a psychologist. She retired from the job she loved as a result of her worsening Parkinson’s Disease. ‘Tremblement’ describes the progression of her condition; it’s her story.

She recounts how she felt when she was diagnosed, as well as the way that her condition affected the people around her. She looks at the importance of learning about the illness – and the available medications – as a way of helping sufferers to face up to their condition. Parkinson’s is a movement disorder and this aspect is described in depth.

The negative impact of stress in Parkinson’s is explored, alongside the importance of relaxation. Throughout the chapters, Terry also examines the importance of sleep, exercise and of understanding the changes in one’s thought and language. She emphasizes the importance of close personal relationships and of understanding oneself.

Terry spent a year in France, considering her future. Finally, she decided to retire and to write this book. ‘Tremblement’ offers a sound and positive introduction on the subject of Parkinson’s Disease.

The following are typical responses to 'So, I've got Parkinson's Disease':

Thank you so much for your book; I simply devoured it, all the time wishing I'd been able to read something like this when my husband was first diagnosed with Parkinson's several years ago.
It has helped so much to know what it feels like from the perspective of the person with Parkinson's rather than finding websites which are more technical or scientific.
I think your book should be read by every GP and every person who is likely to come in contact with people with Parkinson's - nurses, physiotherapists, opticians, dietitians, carers, to name but a few.
I thank you again - it was courageous of you to write it and I feel sure it will help many people in years to come.
Sue Gilliat

“This is a very good book, containing a mixture of anecdotes, narrative and science. It is engaging, compelling and refreshing.”
The Cure Parkinson’s Trust magazine, Summer 2013

‘This book provides a sound introduction to Parkinson’s Disease from the point of view of someone
who has had the disorder for ten years.’
Professor Limousin, Reader in Clinical Neurology and Consultant Neurologist, University College London Hospital (UCLH), London.
