Availability: Ready to download

"Boulders: Life with Parkinson’s Disease recognizes that the small obstacles of daily life pebbles when one lives with one’s health intact—can become a field of boulders that demands planning and effort to traverse when one lives with an impairment. Steven Briggs has turned a series of personal narratives, originally shared at meetings of a support group for people living "Boulders: Life with Parkinson’s Disease recognizes that the small obstacles of daily life pebbles when one lives with one’s health intact—can become a field of boulders that demands planning and effort to traverse when one lives with an impairment. Steven Briggs has turned a series of personal narratives, originally shared at meetings of a support group for people living with Parkinson’s disease, into this collection of stories. By injecting a sense of humor that revels in observing life’s little incongruities and each person’s endearing idiosyncrasies, Boulders helps its readers to place themselves in the shoes of the person with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. From that perspective, the stories cover making one’s way through the various parts of a typical day: the intricacies of grocery shopping, gardening, bathing, managing home maintenance and safety, going out to eat, going to the doctor, enjoying hobbies, taking a road trip, and visiting the rec center. You may have received a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. You might know someone who lives with the disease. Perhaps you find inspiration in reading about how another person negotiates his or her way around the boulders that loom along life’s paths. No matter what brings you to pick up this book, you will find it entertains, educates, and inspires you to face the boulders in your own life with courage and a smile."

    I received this book as a giveaway from goodreads and i can honestly say it was 100% amazing! One of the funniest, most heartwarming and informative books i have read this year. I would read a full length novel of similar stories by this author with ease. An all-round wonderful book.

    A humorous and inspiring look at some of the challenges and hurdles that people with Parkinson's Disease have to overcome every day. I think anyone who reads this will enjoy it and take something good away from doing so. I think the most important message I got from reading this is: Everyone encounters boulders in the course of their lives, facing these challenges can be more difficult for some people than others. Facing your boulders with humor and optimism (as well as a good deal of patience a A humorous and inspiring look at some of the challenges and hurdles that people with Parkinson's Disease have to overcome every day. I think anyone who reads this will enjoy it and take something good away from doing so. I think the most important message I got from reading this is: Everyone encounters boulders in the course of their lives, facing these challenges can be more difficult for some people than others. Facing your boulders with humor and optimism (as well as a good deal of patience at times), will generally yield the best outcome. It's probably a good way to avoid spiraling into depression as well.

    This was a very well done book. It was taking a bad situation and making it humerous. I giggled while reading it. I also learned how difficult it is to live with this disease. Thank you .
