In the fictional world many of us try to live in for much of our lives, Valentine’s Day means flowers and valentine cards and boxes of chocolates – all lovely (especially dark chocolate!), but tending towards the superficial.
Here, however, is a touching, bitter-sweet video showcasing a couple in which one person has Parkinson’s disease and the other is his caretaker. It speaks volumes about what people can do when they love someone.
I met Geoffrey and Donald at the last World Parkinson Congress in Portland; we were official WPC buddies. They sent me this video which was produced by Abbvie, the drug company, which never, to my mind, showed it publicly.
Best wishes for good health (physical, mental and emotional) to everyone, on Valentine’s Day as well as every other day.
