Facebook Users Respond to Our Post "What's Your New Year's Resolution?"

To keep moving and learning new things. To focus on what I can do and let go of what I can't. When experiencing a difficult day — change my plans and thoughts to make it a positive day. Have a sense of humor. I recently started boxing and it is amazing how it is helping me in so many ways! Officially diagnosed at 36 in 1999.

My resolution is the same as it was before New Year's: to do as much as I can, as well as I can, for as long as I can, despite being diagnosed with PD at 47 in 2012.

My resolution is to try and make each day count. To stay as active as possible and just keep going even when I think I can't. Diagnosed two years ago at age 36.
