Parkinson's-Related Fatigue

Recently I worked with a client with Parkinson's Disease who had a major barrier to her ability to enjoy life. She is typically an active woman and loves to socialize and do group activities. But more and more often found herself heavy in her chair, nearly incapacitated by fatigue related to her Parkinson's Disease. It was depressing her to not be able to be with her friends, family, or neighbors the way she enjoyed. She also realized it was a barrier to staying physically active to keep on top of the motor symptoms of Parkinson's.


I shared this resource with her:

She said the actionable recommendations to manage and reduce her fatigue were really helpful. Although her fatigue is not gone, it is better and she has managed to make some adjustments to her schedule to compensate for it.


She feels she has better control over her fatigue

rather than her fatigue controlling her.
