It was at the end of 2011 after 3 different doctors one who is a tremor specialist(didn't even know there was such a dr,) The words I always thought were for other people came out of his mouth Holly you have Parkinson's . My husband and I just sat there while he filled out the forms I will be needing for work. He asked if I had any questions , I did a little chuckle and told him I had recently saw my grandmother detererate from pd until she past. Then he asked again do I want to ask him anything. I just looked at him asked him about my new medication. then told him I would start making a list once this all sinks in. For the first few weeks ,it seemed to be going well, then like a lighting bolt it all hit me . I feel like I am loosing my mind , one minute I am happy the next I am crying, one day things are quiet and calm the next I could churn butter. Then on New Years eve my Grandson leaned over and asked me "Giggi why do you wiggle so much? I explained as best I could , and told him I had medicine , He thought the meds made me wiggle I told him it is to stop it . His words came out as clear as day Tell the doctor they don't work. My grand children are helping me keep things in perspective.enjoy each day for what you have. You don't always know what tomorrow will bring!! Hang in there everyone.
