Exercise is medicine for PD.
TT is one of the best sports therapies,
and it’s fun too.
All views are my own.
Young(‘ish) onset, tremor dominant form can be slower progression than some, for which I am most grateful. I am convinced the following have assisted enormously too:
- Taking control of my condition, through partaking in research studies that I feel I can contribute towards for finding a cure, whilst learning more about the disease.
- Leading a relatively (pro-)active lifestyle has helped enormously too – daily dog walking, long term league table tennis player and not-as-often-as-i-use-to-be cyclist.
- Together with a generous dose of positive outlook, and an early medical retirement in 2017 which has eliminated a lot of the day-to-day stresses.
- Last but certainly not least, all the support my loving family and friends – too many to name check. Amen.

I was fortunate to work for a large company who sponsored the Games and got to spend two glorious weeks in the front of house team at the Wheelchair Rugby venue in the magnificent Queen Elizabeth II park.
