I am not awesome at any one thing, but I have accomplished a lot of OK shit!
Somehow, I've managed to raise 2 kind, thriving humans who,are killing this thing called life, but they will undoubtedly spend time on a therapist couch unwinding some of their childhood - no surprise there!
I learned very early in life that drinking and running quieted my mind. I did both for much of my life until 3 years ago when my heart knew I had to get sober if I wanted to stay alive. So, I got sober, kept running and then I got Young Onset Parkinson's.
Seriously, I can't make this shit up! However, as my therapist reminds me... as shitty as the diagnosis is, I have a new found passion for life that I have never had.
I have to work harder than ever to keep my sobriety and exercise is ironically the best treatment for Parkinsons. So...now I run for my life, literally.
