People with Parkinson’s Disease Discuss Ways They Cope with Their Disease

How do you take your mind off Parkinson’s disease?

We asked people with Parkinson's disease, "What do you do to take your mind of Parkinson’s disease?" Here's what they said.

There’s no question Parkinson’s disease brings many challenges for people. We are also immensely interested in how people with Parkinson’s cope with their disease on a daily basis. ”

— Brett Walker

AMERICAN FORK, UTAH, US, November 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — PhotoPharmics recently learned the depth and breadth of ways people with Parkinson’s cope with the devastating disease when they asked a large group of them a simple question: What do you do to take your mind of Parkinson’s disease?

There were over 400 responses, and each response was put into one of eight different categories: physical and mental distractions, entertainment, exercise and sports, family and friends, games and puzzles, hobbies and leisure, religion and spirituality, work, and holistic or natural solutions. The answers were insightful, varied and oftentimes inspiring. They offer a fascinating view of what it could be like inside the world of a unique and fiercely strong group of people. The most popular category was hobbies and leisure, which captured about 28 percent of the responses. Those in this group enjoy things like gardening, painting, writing and sewing.

“I try to keep myself busy,” said Mary Beth Longdon, who pinpointed cooking as a hobby she loves. “I love to cook, although it’s nothing complicated anymore. The pain is worth the pleasure so far.”

One respondent named Lisa said her collections help distract her from Parkinson’s. “I collect antique buttons,” she said. “Sorting them helps me relax.”

Another popular category was exercise. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, exercise is “a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and activities of daily living. Exercise and physical activity can improve many PD symptoms.”

51 responses, or 13 percent, mentioned sports and exercise as a way to distract from Parkinson’s disease. Responses included things like golf, boxing, swimming, hiking, stationary bikes and more.

Lauri Ohleger mentioned several ways she stays active: “Ride bikes, hiking, the gym, boxing; staying active in both mind and body!”

Here’s the full breakdown of responses:

– Hobbies and leisure: 32 percent. People listed many different hobbies like gardening, painting and collections.
– Entertainment: 15 percent. Entertainment includes movies, television, music and books.
– Exercise/sports: 14 percent. The second-most popular category for responses.
– Games and puzzles: 8 percent. Things like jigsaw puzzles and card games were popular responses.
– Work: 8 percent. Some people with Parkinson’s found work a pleasant distraction.
– Physical and mental distractions: 7 percent. These responses included things like alcohol and other depressants, as well as scrolling through social media.
– Family and friends: 7 percent. These respondents found comfort being with loved ones.
– Religion/spirituality: 5 percent. Prayers, meditation and ministering were the popular responses in this category.
– Natural/holistic solutions: 3 percent. This category includes things like massage and other natural therapies.

“There’s no question Parkinson’s disease brings many challenges for people,” said Brett Walker, a spokesperson for PhotoPharmics. “And while PhotoPharmics is heavily invested in using phototherapy to treat it, we are also immensely interested in how people with Parkinson’s cope with their disease on a daily basis. Gathering information like this, however informal, gives us a glimpse into the lives of a group of people about whom we care a great deal.”

The neurodegenerative disease manifests itself in dozens of different ways, including physical (or motor) symptoms, like stiffness, rigidity and an involuntary tremor; and non-motor symptoms, like depression, delusions and anxiety.

But the resiliency and determination of people with Parkinson’s cannot be understated. These courageous men and women, “warriors” as they like to call themselves, face their condition every day and choose to fight.

Perhaps their attitude can best be summed-up by one respondent who simply said, “I get busy and dare Parkinson’s to keep up.”

Plant it Again Announces GoFundMe to Build First Plant Recycling Facility of its Kind

Plant it Again has ambitions to create the first drought-tolerant plant recycling facility in San Diego, CA

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — It is often during the most challenging of times when life-changing ideas are born.

Dedicated to improving the world, a determined young lady has launched her Plant it Again GoFundMe intending to make a world of difference.

Sixteen-year-old Olivia Kries, a High Tech High Mesa junior, Miramar Young Marine, and Girl Scout could not understand why people would throw succulents away without contemplating the consequences of their actions. Succulents cannot be composted and thus are destined to take up valuable space in our landfills. So, Olivia came up with Plant It Again, an innovative idea that helps change the world by reimagining discarded succulents, cacti, and ground cover, as plants that deserve a second chance.

An eager and environmentally conscious teen, Olivia underscores the importance of these drought-tolerant plants, their assistance in land erosion, and their prevention in the spread of fires. Another unique characteristic of succulents is the ease from which they can be propagated, the act of regrowing a whole new plant from just one cutting or leaf. Olivia is quick to highlight how one donated plant could create the possibility of hundreds of new succulents rehomed back into our communities. Olivia’s exciting new GoFundMe campaign aims to recycle these drought-tolerant plants back into our communities while saving the planet's valuable natural resources.

Another vital aspect of the Plant it Again mission is to maintain a holistic view of second chances. Painfully aware of disabled adults who face closed doors when seeking employment, Olivia looks to overcome a shocking reality:

80% of adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities struggle to find meaningful work.

Working in concert with several organizations such as Options For All, the nonprofits' structure will allow adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities to gain valuable job experience as sales clerks, arrangement designers, tool refurbishers, class instructors, and artists; Skills that they can acquire at the pace their limitations allow. Funds raised from a retail store stocked with recycled succulents, garden tools, unique gifts, and upcycled handmade art will create a positive environment where everyone feels welcome.

Olivia's vision is that Plant It Again will not only make a difference within her community but fully inspire others to rethink their environmental impact by creating an eco-friendly, plant-friendly, and community-friendly virtuous cycle.

.At the moment, The Plant it Again GoFundMe has a goal of raising $150,000 via the online platform, which can be found here https://www.gofundme.com/f/plant-it-again

The goal is to use received funds to create the first drought-tolerant plant recycling facility of its kind in San Diego, CA, a centrally located storefront where the public can donate their yard cuttings and gently used gardening tools and pots that focuses on the following:
· Recycling drought-tolerant plants back into local communities.
· Train and employs adults with disabilities into exciting and fulfilling career opportunities.
· Promotes saving the planet's valuable natural resources.
· Promote upcycling of household items in addition to plants.

In addition to the plant donation center, Plant It Again will also offer a work and design studio open to the public. It will be a place to donate, shop, create art, and take free educational gardening classes all under one roof while creating a safe and secure work environment for everyone to succeed.

The Plant It Again GoFundMe provides rich rewards for every tax-deductible contribution made including:

What Do These Three People Have in Common? They’re Making it Through the Pandemic Safe and Well

Giuliano only discovered his true calling as a sculptor after reading Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

Hsuan may be young, but this precocious granddaughter knows the secret to happiness. She is helping her grandfather so he doesn’t have to work so hard.

Hsuan may be young, but this precocious granddaughter knows the secret to happiness. She is helping her grandfather so he doesn’t have to work so hard.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Giuliano is an artist who creates amazing sculptures using steel, flame and color. It was only recently that this talented blacksmith realized his artistic talent. He credits this life-changing discovery to the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health through which he realized his true self and unleashed his artistic potential.

Christine uses a simple method to grow sprouts right in her own kitchen. In two days, she transforms a bag of seeds into a sizable crop of healthy food. “People are really on edge,” she says, “and it’s easy to fall into that zone.” She shares the secret to happiness from the book Scientology: A New Slant on Life.

And speaking of happiness, helping her grandfather with his gardening so he doesn’t have to work so hard means happiness to little Hsuan from Nantou County, Taiwan.

New videos are published daily on Scientology/Daily Connect on the Scientology website. They cover a broad gamut of interests and locales but each is a microcosm of the way the pandemic has affected us all.

Scientology/Daily Connect was created as part of a program to ensure we all make it through the pandemic safe and well. As soon as the pandemic began, the most effective measures were researched for ensuring the safety of Scientology staff and parishioners, and these were implemented internationally as protocols under the direction of Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige.

To make this prevention information broadly available, the Church of Scientology created more than a dozen videos and three educational booklets: How to Keep Yourself & Others Well, How to Protect Yourself & Others with a Mask & Gloves and How to Prevent the Spread of Illness with Isolation. These are all available free of charge in 21 languages on the How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center on the Scientology website.

Since May, Scientologists have distributed 5 million copies of these educational booklets in communities around Scientology Churches and Missions across the globe.
