Hi, my name is Paul Betney. I’m forty four years old and I’ve had Parkinson’s Disease for over twenty years. It colours a lot of what I write about, but I don’t think that means you have to have Parkinson’s to appreciate it. Parkinson’s has taught me a lot of important stuff. It’s taught me that the future is uncertain, unknown and when I sat down and thought about that I realised that that’s true for everyone. I believe I’m lucky, because I’ve been given a reason to think about it and I believe that’s made me a stronger person. It’s helped me see that an uncertain future is nothing to be afraid of. In fact, it’s something to get excited about, because it makes right now precious and it means that in the future anything is possible. Why worry about a future where anything can happen? Surely that world of possibilities is an amazing thing! If you don’t have Parkinson’s I hope you’ll still read my blog. I like to think it has something for everyone.
