A message from the intervener for the Question Period: Ms. Christine Beaudoin

“Hello, my name is Christine, I am 51 years old, I work in a CLSC as a physical rehabilitation therapist in the physiotherapy department at home. Daily, I encounter people struggling with illnesses or that have undergone surgeries. I love my work! I’m also the mother of 3 beautiful young adults, and I have a spouse with whom I share a passion for sport!

During a bike trip in Gaspésie, I tell Daniel that it does not smell like the sea anymore! …I feel a gradual loss of my sense of smell … My left hand is shaking, but my mother has an essential tremor therefore … I try not to worry. Then, the tremor intensifies and becomes more precise … it’s a resting tremor! I know what it means!

I am now 58 years old and I live with Parkinson’s. Since the diagnosis, I try to develop strategies. This is what I want to talk about: taming Parkinson’s and living well with your illness! Easier said than done! What if we speak about it? ”
