I got back from my holiday in Gran Canaria on Saturday night. Arrived in a freezing cold Manchester Airport at about 2.30 am. Had a really good holiday with brilliant weather. The funny thing was that my tremors, which are my main symptom, had a rest for a week - although they have returned with a vengeance, fully refreshed now. I had very little visible tremor, though some internal ones, for the whole week. I slept better. Even when waking, I got back to sleep quite quickly. I hired a sun lounger for the balcony, but only used it the first and last nights, when I was obviously stressed. I was a bit unsure when entering the swimming pool and still unable to swim as I could not get my legs to the ground. Other than these small inconveniences, I felt 'almost normal' and, I am told looked it.
I think we will have to move there!! This proves to me that stress must really affect my symptoms. But how do I destress myself? I lead an active life, as much as I can, and am very lucky compared to others, but also frustrated having had a taste of how much better things could be. Never like they used to be, but better than they are today after another night of little sleep. Back to reality. Do I feel a song coming on!!
