This is a personal account of having Parkinson’s Disease from the point of view of someone who has had the disease for twenty years. Terry’s condition is now considered advanced. The book addresses a very complex neurological disorder, characterised by complications in the motor (movement) and non-motor (cognitive) aspects of the late stage condition. It is written in a hopeful and positive manner despite the burden, placed on the author, of the advanced symptoms and the drug side effects.
In So, Parkinson’s, Call me Bloody-Minded, Terry talks about preserving dignity amidst a deteriorating situation where even close relationships come under immense pressure. Her long acquaintance with Parkinson’s has created many methods of dealing with the condition’s difficulties. These methods are included here.
There is humour and there is pain, and the story contains themes emphasising the importance of living a fulfilling life during many traumatic situations that readers should draw inspiration from. It is for those people suffering this condition, their carers, friends and relatives, employers, and the medical profession.
