Big Brother Is Watching

The hounds of hell are always snapping at your heels when you have PD. Worst of all are the unceasing side-effects, like the bronchitis I've been battling since my birthday on September 26. My gift was escaping pneumonia this time around. Second worst is constantly being harrassed by the Medical System. My two health aides reported my eating out during Hazel's visit as well as my weekly visits to the beauty parlor. Now I'm being dropped from their Medicare services and coverage. Look, folks! The only Wonder Woman ever to be cured of Parkinson's Disease. She tries to walk. She talks. She thinks. She eats. She has clean hair! Step right up and see her in her cage. Just fifty cents!

Dear Barbara,

There is something so very twisted about our health care system. Pooey on the so-called aides

When I worked at Disability Resources for Students at Arizona State University, I encountered this same lack of compassion and unwillingness to consider what it would be like to live with a particular disability.

I say put on all the purple you own and a flashing hat with feathers and keep up the good work living a brilliant life.

Be gone oh crocodiles of this world!
