  • Hi Jill, I'm so pleased you were able to get away and that you had a good time. I hope you will be able to go on holiday many more times.

    X

  • That sounds like a wonderful vacation. I'm so glad you shared it with us, Jill. Those were long days out and about; your stamina is quite impressive, too. You go, girl!

  • I commend you Jill for your typing skills. My husband has left the keyboard long ago. Unless there are pix he can 'see' he does not he attempt.

    About your arm. It may be something greater than chiropractic, but that sure is where I would go first. I take it that you sit alot. this put alot of strain on parts of your body that might need adjusting. especially tingling....sounds like a pinched nerve and/or not enough blood flow. A pt can help you with excercises after the Chiropractor moves the arm neck and upper lumbar around...yikes! but if theyre good they know what theyre doing!

    I don't want to ruin your holiday , but I am interested in your symptoms....they seem so difft than B's . He is cognizant but cannot FIND the words to answer back...you seem quit able to use language....and again the typing my husband cannot see the keys nor does he have the coordination to push the right key....actually I am not sure about that.....and walking, period!.....he just want to sit there! I ask him what time he would like to go, not if he would like to go...I know that question would lead to a "NO"...and if he really does not want to go I respect that.

    At any rate you can see the diffc. between you and B. Maybe when you get back on holiday you can tell me what you do to keep doing!

    Have a great holiday watch out for slippery stones!;)

  • hi all

    AND A :-)

  • I can't wait to hear from you. you are online so to speak. Do you feel a disconnect from others? Or do you feel PSP has not taken things such as social skills from you....Please forgive my boldness but I am very interested in your journey. As you have already read, B and many others with PSP slip easily into apathy.....you seem to be repelling this quite nicely and communicating with others.....Do you feel a connect with others? besides this site, how are you maintaining your social connection....do you feel a disconnection since being diagnosed? I delve into my husband's situation as something to be studied and use that info to modify and adjust his environment....So again I don't want to be cold but I am curious....

  • Jill I I JUST FOUND your answer ...forgive me that I did not scroll down further ....If it is not on the screen...it's not on the computer...but you did write back thank you. I will read it now anxious to hear/read your answers....Thank you again

  • Jill so glad you had a good break - must have been nice to meet up with your family - and don't worry about the typing - you are doing brilliantly and we can understand everything you write so it is not a problem .

    Love Georgepa

  • tenacity is what gets you through....Yes! Yes Bruce is not a spit fire (i am that) but he considers the way he should go and goes. even if that means plowing his walker into the dining room chairs hahaha. But some of this cannot be controlled by him...do you feel like you have control over social skills...apathy is not part of you? Is it truly where you are from? or is it you, Jill? ...do you have apathy lingering and fight it off...or is apathy in social realms something that just does not affect you. B does not have some symptoms ( or whatever ) that others have.....

    when were you diagnosed?...Again please forgive me for the bombardment of questions.....

  • hi VB

  • Well they did prescribe antidepressants for B....did not do him much good.....yet. His behavior (except for apathy) has not been much affected....I was just wondering what kept you so spry...I must commend you again and thankyou for writing back. You have fought and won and are still winning ! I hope the new neuro works out for you no sense fighting that as well...uggg

    Have a lovely ....evening...Its 6:48 am here....wish I were sleeping

  • Sounds like you had an action packed holiday in Yorkshire, my fave place around that area is Robin Hood Bay, not sure if that is possible in a wheelchair or unbalanced.we have just returned from Dumfries and Galloway, so beautiful. Checkout Rockcliffe near Dalbeattie, it is a beautiful spot and there is a small parking area looking onto the beach ( even a ramp onto the beach) Also a loo there too. You could easily spend a day looking out to sea. There is a tea room and ice cream van but that is about all. it is heaven on earth in my eyes. Enjoy your stay and hope you get the hand sorted.

  • THANKS KATE FOR YORU COMMENT

    I APPRECIATE IT AND I HAVE BEEN TO ROCKCLIFFE B4 BUT NOT THIS TIME AROUND

    THE HAND SI STILL NOT SORTED = TIME WLL TELL
