Excerpt from John's above post:
Lost in the world of "nicotine normal," we were each provided a new identity, one that might help us explain why we allowed each and every puff
to destroy more air sacs, pump more fats into our arteries and keep us content little slaves.

I say "living with" or "working through" Parkinson's. Acceptance doesn't mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there's got to be a way through it. I look at it like I'm a fluid that's finding fissures and cracks and flowing through."
