The Night Shift On Requip

The Night Shift On Requip

Well its that time of the night again , went to bed at 11.30 pm and guese what back up wide wake at 12.30, , had a cup of tea , then decided that as my wife the lovely Laraine needed petrol for her car befor she went to work, i would do it for her so 1.30 am off i go got the car keys and started of , rain and wind lashing down here just now , the petrol station is only about 5 mins from our house , got the petrol and on the way back it sudenly dawnd on me that my night driving is not that good ( sight poor in the dark) made a wrong turn and landed in all i can say was a very large puddle in mid road, car splutterd to a halt , in mid puddle , shit what will ido now ? then out of the dark they appeard, in ther florecent car lights on full , ( morning sir ? haveing a bit a trouble are we, they said, oh have we had a few drinks sir ? ( No Not i ) i was in mid shake by then head legs the full monty,

You dont look too steady on your feet sir, can you explain why you are in this state? I have Parkinsons i said , both rolled ther eyes and off to the back of the police car i go, Blow in to the bag , , Not a single drop o booze was registerd , as i try to explain agin i fumbled and got out my little card which explains that i have PD and not a drunk, after a few more tense moments they help me retrive Laraines car and bid me good night, the moral of this story is i will not go to get petrol agine in middle of night, .

its now 2.33 am in Gartcosh and im goint to have anouther cup of tea

Good morning all

  • 3 -this is something I don't understand about PD, why are we awake?

    Is it PD or the meds?

    I also might get to sleep for a couple of hours but then wake up and cannot get back to sleep. I'm not going to take medicine to get sleep.
