10 Rahasia Menggapai Harapan dan Hidup Lebih Bahagia dengan Penyakit Parkinson

Akhir-akhir ini, perkiraan jumlah orang yang terserang penyakit Parkinson sangat mengejutkan. Jika estimasi ini akurat, maka angka ini hampir mencapai titik puncak dari sebuah pandemi. Hal ini sangatlah menakutkan kita dan membuat kita mempertimbangkan bahwa di negara-negara yang paling padat penduduknya di dunia, jumlah penderita Parkinson akan berlipat ganda menjadi hampir 30 juta pada tahun 2030. Meningkatnya data statistik ini mungkin tampak luar biasa, tetapi hal ini nyata, dan hal ini dipicu oleh populasi usia lanjut yang semakin bertambah banyak. Usia merupakan faktor risiko yang tidak dapat dihindari ataupun ditolak dan faktor ini adalah salah satu yang mendukung bertambahnya jumlah penyakit Parkinson. Semakin meningkatnya usia harapan hidup, maka semakin meningkat pula jumlah penderita. Dengan kata lain, jika semua orang ingin hidup 100 tahun, kita akan dipaksa untuk berhubungan dengan penyakit Parkinson, dan itu akan menjadi krisis di seluruh dunia.
Dalam perjalanan hidup sebagai Direktur Medis Nasional untuk yayasan Parkinson nasional (National Parkinson Foundation/NPF), saya telah bertemu puluhan ribu penderita penyakit Parkinson, anggota keluarga, dan teman-teman. Salah satu pertanyaan yang paling umum di dalam pikiran mereka adalah "apa yang bisa saya lakukan untuk membuat hidup saya dan kehidupan di sekitar saya lebih baik?" Saya menulis buku ini untuk membantu memuaskan rasa penasaran yang diceritakan oleh penderita Parkinson dan keluarga di seluruh dunia. Dengan rasa semangat, melalui jaringan kami, mantan rekan dan kolega kami telah menerjemahkan buku ini ke dalam banyak bahasa mungkin untuk mendapatkan kata kunci tentang rahasia untuk berharap dan kehidupan yang lebih bahagia dengan penyakit Parkinson.

The most humbling experience of my life has been the time I have spent with families, and with patients suffering from Parkinson’s and chronic neurological diseases. I use the word humbling, because time after time, in person, and also on the web forum, we have uncovered simple and addressable issues and secrets that have changed people’s lives. For some sufferers it has meant walking again, for others it has restored their voices, and for many it has resulted in the lifting of a depression, anxiety and desperation cloud that has obscured their dreams, and robbed them of potential unrealized happiness. I never assume a sufferer or family member is aware of the “secrets” that may lead to hope and to a happier life. We must share these secrets, and this is the purpose of this book.

Each chapter of this book reveals an important secret, and with each secret I will explain the insight, the rationale, the empiricism, and the science behind it. In each chapter I will also try to reveal a little more about myself, and a lot more about the patients and talented clinicians who gifted the Parkinson's secrets. These patients planted the seed of faith. They learned to grow hope, and they discovered the core values necessary to achieve happiness despite the chronic illness of Parkinson's disease.
