The Secret Life of Parkinson's is a podcast created by Parkinson's patients, sharing their stories and interviewing others, on things we deal with on a daily basis. It's hard for people with PD to talk to others about the disease because sometimes it's difficult for the patient themselves to describe what they are feeling. Talking to other PD patients helps us express what we are going through in ways we might not be able to express to family and friends.

    #109: Parkinson's and the Hospital - changes are happening

    Dr. Benjamin Walter joined us from the Cleveland Clinic to talk about a very important initiative that he has been working on: when in the hospital, people with Parkinson's should be able to receive their medications at their specific times and that the staff and pharmacy are notified what drugs NOT to administer. I can't thank Dr. Walter and The Parkinson's Foundation enough for putting so much into this very critical project. As Brian said, I was "geeking" out!

    #108: Easy Movement in Bed - Sheets for Parkinson's Comfort

    If you're living with Parkinson's and have trouble sleeping like I do, I have a solution for you: bed sheets that make moving around EASY! A few months back, Melissa recommended these sheets to our group. After realizing I was getting 'stuck' when tossing and turning at night, I decided to give them a try—along with their pajama set. Tune in to the podcast to hear my review and learn more from the founder and CEO who joined us for an insightful conversation.

    #107: Pain with Parkinson’s…viewers comments

    I posted episode #106 on YouTube only, to talk about my pain that I think is related to PD regardless of what others say. So many people responded/commented that we wanted to share more.

    #102: Parkinson's and SIBO (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

    Dr. Patel is back sharing the details of SIBO (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and Parkinson’s when they occur together. Changes in muscle movements are common throughout many parts of the body for people with PD, including the GI tract. SIBO is often the result of food and liquids moving too slowly through the small intestines.
