I came across this podcast (Oregon Pub Radio) which was recorded Sept 2015. Perhaps you've already heard it. Its an interview of Jon Palfreman who has been a longtime medical journalist, and as such reflects his experience in his articulateness. (He blogs here http://www.journalofparkinsonsdisease.com/).

You might be interested in listening to see if you recognize anyone.

Phase Update.
Blogger tells me that its been since December 2013 since I last posted here. Not being much of a creative type, that doesn't surprise me. Indeed, in the big picture, that's not so long ago. When I began this blog I was not lo...

I'm just wondering if any of you diagnosed with PD experience anything like your brain being "loose" inside your skull at times? I do and its very annoying and a bit disconcerting.  On the upside, that sensation is not always there, and when it is, it seems to go away if I press on with some activity.

It does seem as though a positive attitude trumps a bummer.

This is a good idea +Marc Cortese .  I'm going to take the liberty to share it to the Parkinson Cafe community, and hope that's ok.

The Affordable Care Act has begun to bring into focus the costs of health care coverage through required rate increase requests by the health insurance companies. 

Are the "unexpected costs" due to more people just sicker than what had been known? How do we know? What should be done about that, and by whom?

Are the "unexpected costs" due to health care providers (our clinics and hospitals) charging insurance companies (and patients) more than they can justify? How do we know? What should be done about that, and by whom?

Are the "unexpected costs" due to costs of pharmaceuticals and durable medical equipment? How do we know? What should be done about that, and by whom?

Are the "unexpected costs" of insuring for health care unsustainable because the they are set against revenue from premiums, or because they are set against "expected" profit margins? What should be the expected, AND, the acceptable profit margin for insuring for health care of a society's citizens? Reasonably, who decides, and how?
The companies say new customers under the Affordable Care Act have been sicker than expected, while federal officials say they want the requests scaled back.

Some Inspiration,
A Manny Pacquiao win over Floyd Mayweather would mean everything to Roach, who has devoted himself completely to his craft.

Here's a story of an interesting observational study. I wonder if it rings true for any of you taking levadopa.
People taking dopamine for Parkinson's disease sometimes begin to generate a lot of artwork. New research differentiates their expressiveness from obsessive or impulsive tendencies.

Yes, I'm sure that applies to Martin as well. The loss of control must be very difficult to deal with, and must affect the energy to take on other challenges.

A couple of members of our support group see a cervical chiropractor and talk about how his wife has improved on her mobility.  We are going to have him as a speaker in October.
