I have made some great friends because I allowed a stranger(s) to approach me when I was struggling to walk, who would ask me if I was ok, and offer to assist me with an arm to hang onto for stability. I enjoy meeting new people, and I am not afraid or embarrassed to tell them why I walk the way I do. I like to follow their feet and it is fun to "left right left", or other fun ways to get me going. I find that they may know someone with PD, or have had a loved one pass away having had PD. I value these new friendships.
A special tribute to all my friends I have met at LA Fitness as a result of you asking if you could help me. Thanks!
