Saving my Life

To Daveyno9 and to all of you who commented on his post " Do most PD sufferers Feel Like This?"....

allow me to express sincerest thanks for sharing your experiences. I want to tell you my experience last Saturday morning.

I was awake in the wee hours of the morning as the pain of lying in bed allows few hours of real sleep. Up and down a few times I finally go to my computer at 6 am on my day off. Checking my email I see there is a new post on the site.

I open t. I read it. I sit and cry. Like a baby. My God...I am not making this shit up!! I am not imagining, I am not a whimp exagerating the strife of daily life!! I have been in denial. I have hurt myself in that denial.

You shared , you commented, and you taught me.So many things I needed to know. Things i couldn't see or face on my own.

Today I feel empowered to start a new fight against this disease. A sensible fight!

My very best to you all,

thankyou , Sheila

Way to go Sheila - think BIG and be BIG! Fondest Tony xx


So glad you told us. Night time is the worst, especially alone, thats when I pick up my computer. Talking helps. Also being empowered by knowledge.

Leave PD behind sometimes. I am off to Art Club today. x


Hi. I'm leaving it behind today, too. Going out to lunch with my daughter and her husband, and they are a lot of fun. Can't wait till Noon. It's really nice having something to look forward to.l


Have a wonderful day!
