This illness we call Parkinson's baffles me.
The fact that the it does not go in a straight line, makes it very unpredictable.
I was diagnosed with it in 2004, and had had for 4-5 years before that.
I have done really well on the medications and exercise.
And lately I have been extremely tired, lightheaded and out of sorts.
First I was blaming the symptoms on pd, until I realized I have SAD and usually
get down and depressed after Christmas for the months of Jan and February.
I did this before pd.
It is difficult to differentiate what is normal for me in any given season, and what is pd onset.
I am beginning to not give any of them much attention, and just go one with my day. If my friends aske me how I am, I tell them I am fine.
I am finding that people really do not want to hear what you are going through, because it scares them!
So I take this as it comes, and still keep a good attitude.
I still wish there was this straight line so we knew what is coming. But there is not, and whatever developes one day, may be gone the next day.
I would like to get to know some of you.
Gigantic blessing of joy to each one of you from
