Episode Info

Episode Info:

In the second episode of this outrageous series of real-life essays, author Bill Schmalfeldt talks about the gradual onset of mild cognitive impairment and how his wife helps keep him in line.  He relates a story about sensory overload at a shopping mall and being impaled on a doggy toy box.  ("I asked my wife to lift my shirt and tell me how much of my intestines were hanging out.  Happily, the answer was none.")  And he complains about news reports that claim Parkinson's is a "fatal disease."

100% of the author proceeds from this book will be donated to the National Parkinson Foundation and the Charles DBS Fund at Vanderbilt... so feel free to listen for free and try not to let the guilt BOTHER you.

Bill blogs daily at Parky Bill's Parkinson's Disease Place.
