I am not complaining and my list is not complete. I'm just thinking about how desperately most of us search for something, ANYTHING, to slow the progression of Parkinson's Disease and how fervently we swear by some or all of these supplements, vitamins, or therapies. Yet, it's completely unknowable. "Compared to what?" was one of MB Anderson's many insightful comments on one of my first posts in which I thought something might be slowing the progression of my disease.
There's no way to know how much worse we might be if we didn't try any of these things. So we soldier on. We don't give up. We can't give up. I swallowed 45 pills today, including 3 sinemets. I will swallow 45 more tomorrow. I will read every post which any of you may write tomorrow. I will remain grateful for the friendships and knowledge which I have gained from this site. I will remain cautiously optimistic that an irrefutable way to slow or stop progression is just around the corner.
