    Dancing to the Tune of Recovery

    in Health

    Sel Kerans discusses his new book, Leading the Dance: Living well with Parkinson’s Disease, and his own journey on the road to recovery in an open, conversational expose of a five year journey with Parkinson’s disease and the experiences that have inspired the writing of a book that may be helpful, motivational and encouraging for others, especially those newly diagnosed with the condition.


    His book has been dedicated to the late Robin Williams and is about overcoming adversity, staying positive and content; focusing on healing, recovery and living well. Leading the dance with an unwelcome stranger called Parkinson’s disease. Sel discusses: 



    What hurdles have you faced?
    How have you overcome them?
    Would you consider yourself recovered from Parkinson's disease?
    Do you believe it's possible to recover completely from the symptoms of Parkinson's disease?
    You mention in your book some reluctance with medication - what's been your approach to taking medication over the five years?
    What resources have been useful for you in learning about alternative approaches to managing the symptoms?

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: To Relapse or not to Relapse (That is not a question)

    in Self Help

    Show Topic: We have moved passed the immediate period of our post treatment experience (The Postpartum). We are now fully integrated back into our society, our lives.  We are now fully exposed to the "dual elements" of life.  Those elements can be the re-entering of us into old experiences, or having new experiences. They all create or cause feelings. Triggers have come............and gone?!? What happens if there's a relapse? How do we respond?
