The Talk | Larry & Rebecca in Conversation – Part One of Three.

View descriptionShare
Published Jan 19, 2022, 8:00 AM

This is part one of three for a mini-series of episodes we are calling “The Talk.” Hosts Larry and Rebecca Gifford are also the guests this week. They will check on how each other is doing physically and emotionally. 

They will talk about personal priorities, advocacy, and how chronic disease changes and challenges the dynamics of a family. We will also get into what gives us hope. In part one, that you are about to hear – we are talking about where our life sits from a practical perspective, the joys and pressures. 

Also, what we are discovering about what we need as people and a family to maintain balance and productivity in our relatively new life where Parkinson’s is a main character.

We are figuring out how to take true breaks, a concept and practice that changes its meaning constantly and looks different as Parkinson’s progresses. And we’re relearning how energy conservation and awareness affects our wellbeing and ability to be present and as healthy as possible. 

Thank you for listening.
