When Julie Wiemann’s mom was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease 13 years ago, Julie knew that her mom’s memory would fade over time. What she didn’t account for was a worldwide pandemic that would send her mom into social isolation and physically confine her for more than a year. Given that exercise and interaction are the best defenses a Parkinson’s patient has against the disease’s acceleration, it was unsurprising to see her take a sharp turn for the worse. Here, Julie tells the story of the impossible situation she and her siblings found themselves in during the past year and explains why she feels a sense of peace in spite of it all.
