International Women's Day
Men are diagnosed with PD almost twice as often as women. I get the honor of being in this minority of females. I never chose this group. I had no choice. I do have the choice in responding to it. I choose to not sit back. I choose to educate myself and others. I choose to not be a victim.
I choose to count the blessings I do have in spite of my PD. I choose to fight. I now know many women with PD who join me in this battle and they are mighty warriors. On this International Women's Day, I recognize them and cheer them on. Fight like a girl ladies because girls are strong and powerful! I am honored to fight beside you.
