This weather is really playing havoc with my cbd/ Parkinsonism. Saw the consultant on Tuesday as things have been getting worse quite quickly. He has now suggested I try Levedopa to see if it helps in any way, I am now at.the stage where I will try anything if there’s a chance of some relief from the shaking/ wobbliness.
Although I can still get around the house by hanging on to walls etc ,I need to use my cane or rollator outside as my legs are very weak.I am still having problems getting to grips with what has happened even though it has been over a year since probable diagnosis. Is this the same for anyone else and how do you cope?
I spend so much time alone, there is only so many crosswords one can do and I can feel the apathy creeping in. Ikeep telling my self to get a grip and get out but I’m getting quite agoraphobic as I am frightened of falling and meeting new people makes me anxious. Ok out with hubby or my friend but I have noticed balance does abandon me at unexpected times. Physio is due next week but I’m finding it dreadfully hard and exhausting to do the exercises in this weather and trying to lift up after floor exercise is a real trial, especially getting motivated on my own. I used to be so nimble!
OT has got me a shower board and grab rail for outside is being fixed Monday. I’m 60 going on 90. Thanks for reading my rant but feeling very self pitying today.
