As you may or may not have noticed I’ve been quite inactive lately, both in the blogosphere and on Twitter.
My grandmother passed last Thursday, so I’ve been with my family a lot.
My grandmother suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for about 15 years. Especially the last few years were hard for her, since she had become paralyzed as well. It was hard for us, her family, as well, to have to see someone we love have to go something like that. In a way, it’s a good thing that she has come to pass, because in a way it has set her free, but it is still incredibly hard on us all to have to miss her.
I know that not many people know what Parkinson’s is, exactly, and I would like to make a series of blog posts about this disease in honor of my grandmother, who suffered from this disease for so (too) long but all the while remained proud and strong. They won’t be particularly long, but I hope at least I will be able to shine some light on the illness.
I’m considering changing the way I blog anyway. I would like to make more posts per week, but shorter ones. I will keep posting the philosophical topics which will remain more lengthy posts, but by cutting up the psychology posts I think it will make it all a bit less dry. Let me know what you think about that.
