Roll over picture to see my core values!
I am a 62 year old computer geek, and spent the majority of my life working in the computer programming field. Now retired, my wife and I live in the Midwest and enjoy the many seasons there. I still enjoy technology and discovering new things; I even do some programming on the side - just now on my own personal projects! We also own and enjoy my 'baby' - a 2012 Chevy Camaro, which we love driving in the summer months with the sun roof open!
I was diagnosed in 2014 with Parkinson's Disease (PD), after experiencing symptoms 2 years prior to that. In March of 2017, I underwent Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) to help with my ever increasing symptoms - especially the dystonia in the feet.
Since being diagnosed, I've spent a lot of my time researching the disease, and using that research to help myself better understand what is and will be happening to me. I've also tried to use that knowledge to support others with this illness and raise the profile of PD.
Hence, I started Deep Brain Thoughts with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and to help and encourage anyone else on this same long, rocky journey.
I hope you enjoy my blog, and keep coming back for more!
