    Thank you Susie

    Your story reminds me of getting caught in a rip at Bondi and finding that all my strength wasn’t enough to get me back to the shore. I only started making headway when I listened to my family who were telling me to swim sideways.

    There are many days when I don’t recognise myself as this person with PD. For me, swimming sideways involves accepting the change in identity so that I can shift what it means for who I am and what my future may look like
