Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0878136975, Paperback)

At first the symptoms were barely perceptible. Then Gary began to notice an occasional tingling numbness, a little slip in coordination, and a slightly dragging foot. It was time to get checked out. Doctor Frere was thorough and asked many questions. Finally, looking at Gary through his rimless glasses, he stated flatly, "I think you may have Parkinson's." What a shock! Gary and his wife Marie looked into a yawning abyss of dark uncertainties, a prognosis leading from a healthy, active, and productive life to one limited by gradually deteriorating physical and mental faculties. Slowly the reality sank in. Where does one find strength and solace in such a time? Gary's story and testimony is open and honest about personal fears, discouragement, and victories. His candid, first-person portrayal of living with Mr. Parkinson is moving and inspiring.
