Normally one’s ability to travel in a vaguely straight and even line.
With Parkinson’s a weaving, stuttering and stalling motion prone to sidewards leanings and crashing to the ground. Physiotherapy and walking backwards are known to improve the comedic value. Sufferers are frequently supposed to be drunk. We wish we were.
Genetics can play a small part in Parkinson’s although seemly not in all patients. It is not necessarily passed on through families either. Like many things in PD we don’t really have a clue.
Living in Scotland we know all about genetics and cloning sheep. (Frankly, I’d be interested in cloning myself a good night’s sleep.)

In chronic illness the overwhelming sensation that you have caused immeasurable suffering and harm to your loved ones, society and the world at large. When in actual fact you are the one suffering from the affliction of being ill-and-it’s-not-your-fault.
