Abstract

Living for 10 years with Parkinson's disease (PD) and Lewy body dementia (LBD) author Thomas B. Graboys, MD recounts the various losses - physical, emotional, social and intellectual - that ultimately add up to a loss of self inflicted by these progressive neurological diseases. No longer able to practice medicine, engage in athletics, or engage fully with his extended family, soon to include 11 grandchildren, Graboys nevertheless writes that there is one aspect of self PD and LBD cannot steal: the soul.
