I think it’s really important for people to learn more about stuff like Parkinson’s and tremors. I deal with tremors, and it’s not a fun thing at all. I’ve been made fun of a lot for it (for some reason, people think it’s funny to joke about me having Parkinson’s, which resulted in that being a nickname for me for a while).
I get it. Shaking in our limbs looks funny. We know we do it. It’s not funny though. It gets in the way of a lot. We can’t control it. Please don’t point it out. Please don’t make any comments about it.
Parkinson’s also doesn’t only exist in people of older ages. There’s a type of Parkinson’s that can come on in youth/teenagers.
Tremors, like what I have, can be a result of many things like brain damage, chemical inbalances, abuse, trauma, etc. mine is a result of chemical imbalances and abuse/trauma.
My point is that I think everyone should read up a little about Parkinson’s and tremors, so when you do encounter someone who is dealing with these things, you won’t react in a way most people have with me.
“Oh my god, why are you shaking? Do you have Parkinson’s or something lol?”
We know it’s happening, and we don’t think it’s funny.
This year marked the 25th anniversary of Tremors, and it also saw the release of the franchise’s long-awaited fifth installment, Tremors 5: Bloodlines. But the biggest Tremors announcement has just been revealed.
A Tremors TV series is in the works. But wait, it gets better! Kevin Bacon is on board as the star and executive producer. He will reprise his role of Valentine McKee from the 1990 original.
Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions are developing the series. Andrew Miller (The Secret Circle) has been tapped to write, bringing the giant killer worms back to the fictional Nevada desert town of Perfection.
The project is being shopped around to potential networks, and multiple bidders are already interested. A short-lived Tremors TV series previously ran on Syfy (then the Sci-Fi Channel) in 2003, but this one is likely to go to a bigger network.
